Top tech this week: 4G coming to UK, Call of Duty for PlayStation Vita, colour Amazon Kindle, new Apple iTunes, and more

If you’ve missed any of our major stories this week, read on for a catch-up in our latest Five for the Weekend.

Call of Duty Vita confirmed, Black Ops 2 also coming 
 Love Call of Duty? Good. Because even more Call of Duty goodness is heading to the PlayStation Vita. We don’t yet know if it will be a port or an entirely new Call of Duty game just yet though. And how about this: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is also all but confirmed after the game was listed on Amazon.

Apple’s iTunes store is great for downloading some of the best mobile games, music and apps you can find, but deep down there’s a lot that be be improved. Thankfully for users, Apple is going to do something about that.
