If you’re having no luck tracking down a 3G iPad, here’s another option to consider. To consider if you’ve got a spare $189,000 laying around that is. It’s the Solid Gold iPad Supreme Edition from Stuart Hughes.
As well as all the gold, it’s also got diamonds on the Apple logo. Here’s more detail:
For the most elite individual, we bring you the the worlds 1st solid gold and diamond ipad. Encrusted with 25.5 cts of ‘I’F’ Flawless diamonds, a magnificent total of 53 individually set sparkling gems dwell beautifully in their solid 22ct Apple logo. The rear and screen surround are made from a single piece of solid 22ct gold, weighing an immense 2,100 grams.This most luxurious ipads appearance is outstanding even down to the precise polishing to reveal its most beautiful harmonious appearance. A magnificent combination of top of the industry technology and unrivalled craftsmanship was invloved in creating this masterpiece.
The ipad is the Wi-Fi & 3G , 64GB version.
Apparently there will only be 10 of these made, so I’m guessing my local Best Buy won’t be stocking them. I have to say that I continue to find all these ‘luxury’ and blinged-out iPads and iPhones really ugly – then again maybe I’m just bitter that I’m right around $189k short of the budget needed to get one. :)
