Apple iPhone Gold: Bling Your Own Device

Apple iPhone Gold? Check out the 24 carat Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. We kid you not. Dino Londis expounds.

If you weren’t dazzled by most of the 200 improvements in Apple iOS 6 — see my piece on what to do before your users upgrade so they can downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 if they need to — this should cheer you up.

It’s an iPhone 5 plated in 24 carat gold by Gold & Co. of London. Talk about dazzled.

For users  who have complained that the new Apple iPhone 5 is too light and too thin, the gold plating does add a bit of weight to the device.

It also makes your wallet lighter.

According to T3, the Gold & Co. of London phone sells for $4,599.

Now we were trying to figure out an AT&T payment plan that would scale for the gold plated phone or tablet. Rumor has it — I started the rumor, actually — that AT&T is selling it without a contract for $4,599 — or for $99 with a two year contract of $996 a month and a $2,000 early termination fee.
