When it comes to premium handsets, it may be all about iPhones and Androids these days, but every now and then there’s a product that pops up with a ridiculous price-tag usually made of a precious material like gold or diamond, but here, Gresso have manufactured a phone made of titanium. The phone runs on Symbian S40 and has a simple bar shape that we would have seen on mobiles maybe 5 to 10 years ago, and the innards are of a similar standard. The Gresso has a measly 30MB internal storage and an expandable micro SD slot for an extra 2GB, an FM radio, Bluetooth capability, media playback and a 2 Megapixel camera,

The Samsung-Apple patent wars continue to push on at full swing revealing all sorts of dirt including Samsung ignoring Google’s warnings that their designs were too close to Apple, and internal memos that show that even the iPhone was actually influenced by earlier Sony-style designs. This war doesn’t seem to be slowing down and no real victor seems in sight, but at least all these court discoveries and findings are kicking up interesting prototype/mockups that help us see the clear evolution that took place as Apple designed its various iOS-based products.
