Vertu Signature Touch packs solid specs and sky-high price

When it comes to Vertu, we've aways been more critical of the average specifications than of the sky-high prices, and the new handmade Signature Touch Android smartphone seems to finally address that. Pairing the company's over-engineered titanium and leather construction with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, Android 4.4 KitKat on a Snapdragon 2.3GHz quadcore, and a 13-megapixel camera, the Signature Touch is for once a Vertu that can compete on hardware, too.

Obama overturns Apple iPad and iPhone sales ban

The Obama government has overturned the rapidly approaching US sales ban on Apple's iPhone 4 and iPad 2, stepping in at the final moment to deny Samsung seeing its rival's phones and tablets pulled from shelves.
