iPhone 4G blingmobe: Yours for £13k

Diamond-encrusted Jesus phone for the discerning fanboi

The essential guide to IT transformation

The fanbois among you who haven't spunked all your wad on sex toys may be interested in flashing the cash on the iPhone 4G Diamond Edition - an absolute snip at £12,995.

The iPhone 4 Diamond EditionThe Apple blingphone is described as "another masterpiece" from Liverpool-based Stuart Hughes. The blurb explains: "The whole surrounding frame is encrusted with circa 6.5cts of top quality VVS, colour 'F' diamonds, individually set sparkling gems.

"The rear section houses beautiful solid Platinum and Diamond Apple logo. Combining the splendid design of the 4G iphone, with the magical radiance of diamonds, has created an exquisite work of art. There is no finer, purer, or rarer gem than the diamond. Celebrate your individuality with the Diamond iphone [sic]."

In case you're thinking that close on £13k is a bit steep for a mobile phone, be aware that the 32-gig Diamond Edition is "factory unlocked for worldwide use" and comes with a "luxurious hand finished wallet made from real Ostrich foot".

Since we suspect that few worshippers at the altar of Jobs - even those among the El Reg readership - have sufficient wonga to possess this object of desire, we have a suggestion: select something considerably cheaper here (NSFW), then crack one off over the above photo. ®
