I paid $10,000 for my first new car. This morning, I heard about a smartphone that sells for nearly $11,000! Engadget.com reports the British smartphone maker Vertu will soon introduce a new device called the Signature Touch, with a starting price of $10,900. The Signature Touch with all the bells & whistles will set you back $14,900! Each phone is handcrafted by a single technician who signs it upon completion. It's apparently quite a device, with features like a 13 megapixel camera, and 64GB of storage. The shell is constructed of titanium, and you can have it encased in calf, lizard, or alligator. Father's Day and my birthday are approaching. My daughter called to ask what I'd like. I doubt she'll spring for one of these.
