The Humble Brick Phone Gets Updated With 22ct Gold and DiamondsS

Only ten of these Privé phones have been created—but if they sell more than one I'll definitely be eating my felt brim at lunch. Each phone's coated in 22ct gold, and has 76 diamonds studded around the LCD.

Yes, that's an LCD—creator Stuart Hughes claims it's "bristling with the latest technology WAP, Text SMS, [and] COLOUR SCREEN." Whoa, suddenly all Nexus One owners are feeling a little embarrassed after reading that. Available now, for £139,995—or $212,400 worth of your presidential notes. [Stuart Hughes]
