Here's the Vertu New Signature Touch. It's not a phone for the likes of me and you.

This 5.2-inch Android is wrapped in leather, titanium and solid sapphire, it comes with a concierge service that puts an assistant at your beck and call and it has a price tag that starts at £6,500 (which converts to about $10,000 and AU$14,100).

This luxury mobile goes on sale globally from mid-October.

Vertu boasts that the phone is handmade in England to extremely high standards. I should hope so too, given the price.
