Here’s a way to be conspicuous in the Apple crowd: have a gold iPhone 5.
Gold & Co, British firm which gold plates gadgets and more, is selling the gold iPhone 5 at the Dubai Collector’s Palace.
Gold & Co is actually selling two versions of its gold iPhone 5, a black version swathed in 24-karat gold and a white version sporting rose gold.
Pricing information for these golden iPhones vary but some reports say that it is available for about $4,600 to about $5,000.
To put that in perspective, an unlocked iPhone 5 with 16GB in internal storage is priced at $649.
The phones will be available starting September 27 in Dubai with no details when and if it will be sold in other countries.
That shouldn’t be a problem to anyone interested in buying this though as they will probably have an easy time going to Dubai on their private jet.
Each gold iPhone 5 will come in its own hand-made wooden chest complete with a certificate of authenticity.
