The $38,000 Royal iPhone 4

I know many of you iDB readers are die hard fans of the new royal couple, William and Catherine, so I thought this would be the perfect fit for you. If you have $38,000 to spare on a new iPhone, you might be interested in this Royal iPhone 4, a majestic – yet uber tacky – iPhone made of platinum, diamonds, and sapphires.

Who in his right state of mind would spend $38,000 on an iPhone 4 when the iPhone 5 is right around the corner? Probably someone with bad taste and lots of cash…

“To celebrate Royal wedding Goldgenie have launched The Royal iPhone with SOLID Platinum rear with VS1 8.50 ct. Certified diamond and Sapphire bezel and Apple logo embellished sides and buttons with London Assay office hallmark and certified diamond certificate.

We have incorporated our London Assay office hallmark onto the SOLID Platinum rear of the Royal iPhone 4 Platinum/diamond Rim and Sapphire and logo making this not only a valuable investment but a rare collector’s item as only a Limited edition of 50 will ever be produced across our Gold Platinum and Rose gold releases. The bezel has been set with quality sapphire and diamonds similar to the late Princes Diana’s wedding ring.”

If $38,000 is slightly over your budget, you may want to go with the more affordable Gold version, which will only set you back $33,000. A royal bargain!

Best of all, all of these exclusive iPhones come in a luxurious box… but they still have the same crappy Apple earbuds.

So, who’s buying this?
