    A designer has produced the world’s most expensive mobile telephone, featuring almost 200 diamonds and costing £1.92 million.

    The casing of the iPhone 3GS Supreme is made from 22-carat solid gold. The front bezel has 136 diamonds, while the Apple logo is made from 53 of the same jewels and the front button has a diamond of more than seven carats.

    Stuart Hughes, from Liverpool, took ten months to make the phone, which comes in a chest made of granite and Kashmir gold and lined with nubuck leather. It was commissioned by an anonymous Australian businessman.

    Those who want an iPhone "different" from the rest can buy this.

    A voided warranty would be the least of his problems ...

    I still prefer the simple plain White look of my White 3GS 32GB, it is much nicer bc flashier isn't always better, remember it is a phone.

    Same with people who use gold or diamonds on their teeth, big waste of money.

    Looks very tacky to me. I would not want to bring that out in public it just screams bad taste.
