8 million dollar iPhone 4 – World’s most expensive phone

Have you ever wanted to stand out in a crowd? Right now if you even had a White iPhone 4 a lot of people would notice you as people continue to wait for its release. However if you really can’t wait any longer and you happen to have a bit of spare cash then why not go for a diamond-clad version instead.

I say a bit of spare cash but for this baby, the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose, you’ll actually need a cool $8 million (around £5 million), according to an article by Stan Schroeder over on Mashable. Way back in July we told you of a $20k iPhone from designer Stuart Hughes who makes a habit of giving extreme makeovers to ordinary gadgets. The iPhone 4 featured then also had diamonds on it and we wondered who would ever pay $20k for a cell phone.

It looks as though he must have found a buyer though as this time Stuart Hughes has gone one better and his latest spectacular iPhone 4 is designed with around 500 flawless diamonds totalling over 100 ct. Also the navigation button is made from platinum with an individual 7.4 ct pink diamond. Apparently only 2 of this latest version of the iPhone 4 will ever be made although I’m surprised it’s as many as two.

A look at the Stuart Hughes website featuring this phone actually shows a purchase button. That seems pretty hopeful to me but what a thought that you could press a button online and spend $8 million just like that on a mobile phone. For more on this go to mashable.com. Let us know your thoughts on the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose. Even if you were a multi-millionaire would you spend that amount of money on the world’s most expensive phone? We’d be interested to hear from you so please do send in those comments.

    He made the world's most expensive suit with a designer called Richard Jewels. Rumour has it that a famous footballer bought one.

    meanwhile there are starving children…..nice

  • aaaaa

    if you care about the children so much stop playing online and go help them. don't bother yourself with comments criticizing others.

    I agree with lauren.

    aaaaa – i think the point is that it's obscene that someone would pay $8m for a phone, when a few dollars would save a life in a third world country.

    And yes i do donate to charity regularly.

    You might understand some day when you grow up.
