The solid platinum iPhone 3G

The solid platinum iPhone 3G

If Stuart Hughes’ 22ct solid gold iPhone 3G wasn’t your thing, perhaps his latest exploit will appeal. It took 230 grams of platinum, 53 certified conflict-free VVS1 diamonds (meaning an expert needs to look at the bottom of the diamond using a 10X microscope to spot the imperfections) and four craftsmen to create the solid platinum iPhone 3G.

I can’t say I’d recommend the purchase of even a standard iPhone 3G less than a month before Apple is expected to announce its successor at WWDC 2009, let alone a £24,495 (US$37,400) model, however I’m about as far removed from the target market of a device like this as one could be.

Usually, once the purchase price of a phone clears $1,000, and precious metals are involved, technical specifications are largely ignored, however we can tell you that the solid platinum iPhone 3G is the 16GB model, and it’s not locked to a particular carrier.
