Diamond encrusted $31,000 BlackBerry Q10 is limited to 25 units
Earlier this month we showed you a BlackBerry Q10 that was dipped in 24K gold and priced at $2500. Outside of the pricey finish, nothing inside the phone had changed from the regular version of the handset. While some might consider spending that kind of money on a smartphone to be a form of conspicuous consumption, there are buyers for this sort of extravagance. In fact, there is another version of the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 that is priced at $31,000.

Made of 18K white gold and covered with more than 700 VVS1 diamonds that add up to 4.7 carats, only 25 units of this diamond encrusted BlackBerry Q10 will be made by Amosu. Each phone comes with an alligator case available in the color of your choice. You can also have your name or company logo printed on the back, or have the back made with crocodile skin.

If the Amosu name sounds familiar, well, it should. As far back as 2008, we told you about the limited edition BlackBerry Pearl that they loaded up with 900 diamonds. Two years ago they blinged out the BlackBerry Bold 9780 with 1400 diamonds in an 18 carat black gold setting and called it the Amosu Black Diamond BlackBerry, priced back then at $26,000. They have also added diamonds and gold to the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Apple iPad.

These aren't the kind of smartphones that you buy to use on an everyday basis. Instead of starting conversations on them, they are more of a conversation piece themselves.

$200,000 to escape Earth's atmosphere on Virgin Galactic. That way I can escape all the hot air being spewed around here, even if it's only a few brief minutes!

But does it come with a pair of earbuds? If not then that's a no buy for me.

I would rather buy a Vertu. They at least look expensive. This looks like a regular Q10 with boring looking diamonds on the sides. (Yeah I know diamonds are not boring but they quite look so on this phone)

Defiantly the Vertu Ti looks far more luxurious, also it has sapphire screen and titanium body.
But personally I would still rather buy a iPhone 5 or Galaxy S4/Note II or HTC One or Lumia,... than one those ridiculously expensive "luxury" phones, even if i was a multibillionaire.

Maybe Blackberry should try actually selling a phone before they put diamonds on it. Nobody is buying the regular phone. Junk junk junk
