Bam. The recently launched BlackBerry Bold 9900 has been outfitted with gold. Lots of gold. If you’re into this kind of bling then Amosu Couture is speaking to you. They’ve taken the time and have decked the bezel, volume rocker and all ports of the 9900 in 24ct. gold. No specs are given as to how much weight this adds, but will set you back a cool $1,618.00CDN (£999.00). The good news is that for the grand you can pick either white, yellow or platinum gold… or have “the bezel encrusted in Swarovski crystallized elements”.

    Oh yay.

    Biggest waste of $$ on the planet. At least put gold on a GOOD phone.

    • skullan

      It’s on a good phone. But, it is still a waste of money and natural resources to be put on a phone in general. There should be a law against using natural resources on this type of product.

    • Senk

      @skullan Seriously? If you were really concerned about natural resources you wouldn’t use a cell phone at all. Let alone a car or computer.

    • skullan

      @Senk

      Absolutely. We’re talking about creating at item which will be obsolete very soon. Perhaps in the next 10 years, technology may change to the point in which they cannot even use the phone on the network.

      Unlike a piece of jewellry, a frame or something that will be around and serve a purpose forever, this will be an expensive natural resource which is wrapped around something with a very short shelf-life.

    “No, mister Bond, I expect you to TYPE!”

  • matthew

    the way gold prices are going up…..it will be a good investment…..even if the phone doesn’t worth anything, let’s say in few month, you will still make money selling the gold part

  • Johnathon Cena

    I assume the entire price is for the gold because that phone is worth $0, its a piece of crap, yesterday’s phone

  • Johnathon Cena

    You can put gold on crap, but its still crap lol
