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.
Absolutely nuts! Would this London company offer free gold covers for the iPhone 6, 7, and 8 if you return your old gold-plated iPhone?
