By Maria Kiselyova MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian modem developer Yota Devices has launched its first smartphone, hoping its novel double-sided screen will allow it to break into foreign markets although analysts doubt it will gain a sizeable share from established rivals. Yota has been developing the phone since 2010. On Wednesday, it was presented to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, a lover of modern gadgets, who suggested the novelty had made iPhone maker Apple "strain", Russian news agencies reported.

Referring to Chen as a “turnaround specialist” after his work with More »BlackBerry’s fate may rest in this man’s hands

Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the Supreme Leader of Iran. He's also an avid Twitter user. Over the past few months, both Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani have warmed up to social media, regularly using Facebook and Twitter to release statements, push agendas, and, in some cases, engage in diplomatic tussles. It’s not that different from how politicians across the globe use social platforms, but the Iranian case is unique considering the leadership’s long-standing public aversion to all things Western — and to social media, in particular.
