The $3.2 Million iPhone 3GS Supreme
It sounds kind of like a pizza.
But if you take away the "supreme" moniker, you'll quickly discover a rather nondescript iPhone 3GS. With the "supreme" tag, however, you're looking at a gold-dipped iPhone of the gods more ornate and pricey than any other Apple product available.
Dubbed "the world's most expensive iPhone," British designer Stuart Hughes is at it again. Having previously dabbled in precious metals and Apple technology, Hughes has netted some impressive media coverage in recent years by rolling out gold-plated iPhones that typically ranged in value from $30,000 to the low six figures. That all changes with the iPhone 3GS Supreme, which according to PC World, is quite the work of impractical art.
The iPhone 3GS Supreme was crafted using 271 grams of 22ct solid gold. The front bezel houses 136 flawless diamonds, which total to a massive 68 carats. The rear Apple logo in solid gold has 53 flawless diamonds amounting to 1 carat, and the front navigation button is home to a single cut very rare diamond at 7.1 carats.
Yes and no.
While no one that I know (including myself) can afford such a tricked-out iPhone, the device has increasingly been used as an instrument of art for artists and entrepreneurs who take modifying their iPhones to a whole new level. In this case, the iPhone 3GS Supreme, which weighs 7kg, was commissioned by an anonymous Australian businessman.
"The iPhone is the phone with the most tricks on the market. What possibly could we do to trick it up more? Bless it with the finest precious metal and jewels," said Hughes. "Most of the ten months was spent trying to source the diamond for the navigation button."

Wow...this is ridiculous. But I guess celebrities need a way to distinguish themselves from us, and this is how they do it. Lol I'd just like to see how many of those diamonds fall on the first week. And the weight, 7Kgs - that's gotta be an anchor in your pocket. You'd get tired just from talking on the phone. Try dropping it...
In case you're wondering, there was no Black Friday deal on the iPhone 3GS Supreme.

Reminds me of the days when musicians wore huge clocks, crosses, and gold chains around their necks!
Next it will be the supreme iphone weighing them down, resulting in massive headaches, neck problems, trips to the chiropractor, followed in their 'golden' years with huge amounts of vicadin and other nefarious Elvis like pain killers to alleviate the pain of being true to their 'art' and 'image'.

You can buy a Bugatti Veyron for 2 million with over 1000HP. Why would you spend that much on a phone? I wouldn't spend no more than 1000 dollars on a phone.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

I think it was quoted correctly before...."A shiney POS is still a POS". Of course, it all depends on how you look at it.....
AT&T/Apple/iPhone lovers..... where can I get one! Does come with any new features? And the haters........ no thanks, already spent to much on the gas going to the Apple/AT&T store.
