Gold iPhones make your mobile photography experience baller

10
The CarbonGold iPhone 5 has a carbon fiber exterior that is coated with 99.9% gold.

Swiss company Golden Dreams has released three ultra fancy versions of Apple's flagship phone.

Golden Dream's $6,500 24ct iPhone 5 is part of a limited run of 50 phones. If it has sold out of the 24ct version, never fear. Golden Dreams also offers a carbon fiber or red alligator phone that covered in ... you guessed it, gold! All versions of the phones are customizable and come unlocked from any carrier commitments.

The CarbonGold iPhone 5 is perfect for photographers who want the stripped down look of smartphone photography but had already set aside enough to buy a Canon EOS-1D X.

I would be happy with a gold bezel on a white iphone. I think that would be slick.

And...my iphone is one of my best tools for getting things done without a computer or iPad. Life can go on even when I'm predisposed (in the loo, but not a gold loo).

HA!

You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.

WTF is "baller"?

I'd rather have Sadaam's gold AK47

Given the choice between a gold plated toilet and a gold IPhone I would probably take the toilet.

I adds new meaning to the word bling.

Collin,
Trust me : gold plated toilets are very cold to sit on.

I plan to buy one just for the utility, it saves a bundle having both an iPhone and gold reflector all in one package.

That should contain around 100 grams of gold. If it doesn't, it's a rip-off. Saying that it's "24 ct" or "99.9% gold" doesn't explain the value of the actual gold content.

I'm guessing, to use a term from Steve Martin in the movie The Jerk, that it is a "profit deal"
