This $4,360 gold-plated iPhone 5s comes with the face of Vladimir Putin engraved on its back side
Russian president Vladimir Putin probably won’t be winning international popularity contests any time soon, but there must be people in Russia who love him. For them, Italian luxury brand Caviar / Perla Penna recently launched a gold-plated iPhone.

Called “Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin”, the new gold-plated smartphone costs around $4,363, and is available to buy only in Russia. The face of Vladimir Putin is etched on the gold-plated back case of this iPhone, and so is Russia’s coat of arms. According to Caviar, the new luxurious handset is a “presidential accessory for people of a higher range.” Well, we can’t imagine someone else would buy it anyway.

The Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin comes in its own specially crafted box, and you can take a look at it in the slideshow below. Of course, despite its expensive coating, this is still just an iPhone 5s that'll work like any other iPhone 5s.

Why are you defending Putin by bringing arguments about Obama? If I'm saying something bad about Putin it is not necessary means that I'm Pro American! You should understand that world is bigger than USA or Russia and there is not only two sides Pro Americans and Pro Russians. So if someone is saying something bad about U.S. it is not necessary that he or she is Pro Russian and opposite if someone is saying something bad about Russia it is not necessary that he or she is Pro American!

If I see something good about USA I will not deny that and if I see something bad about USA I will not deny that also. Same with Russia if I see something bad about Russia I will not deny that and if I see something good about Russia I will not deny that also.

And you are very unhappy because East Europe don't kiss Putins ass right?

"and have business with countries that r good for us..."

Independent countries themselves decide what they want to listen russia likes it or not. ;)

For example my country 24 years ago decided that do not want to have nothing common with russia.

Haha well for starters, while obomber was beating the drums of war in Syria, it was Putin who brokered the deal with Assad to destroy his chem weapons arsenal, effectively preventing war. Don't pretend to know anything about foreign politics when you haven't even left your own country. Haha. Too easy.

I agree that no war is good to all. But Putin did that just because he and his friends oligarchs has personal interest in Syria not because he wanted to help Syria because of good will. I don't say that everything what U.S. does is good. At the moment I'm talking about Putin and I don't see in which way he is a good leader. Maybe for himself and his friends oligarchs he is a good leader but for Russia and rest of the world he is aint good leader. And according to the current situation he is just another Hitler.

"Don't pretend to know anything about foreign politics when you haven't even left your own country. Haha. Too easy."

Don't pretend that you know something about me when in reality you know nothing about me! if you wanted to say that I'm from U.S. then you are wrong because I'm not.

P.S.
Also you have registered here in PhoneArena.com just 5 hours ago and made two comment and both of thise two comment is about how good Putin is so it looks like you are just another Putins propogandist.

I appreciate your rant, but rest assured, this is not an anti American opinion I make, at least not American citizens. The US gov't has a LOT to answer for, of which I haven't got time (or motivation) to go into, apart from 'you reap what you sow'. As for war, well no one does it quite as well, as often and as lucrative as Washington. As for me being a Putin propagandist, I am AUSTRALIAN ! Now can you actually be further removed from Russia?
Anyways, I'm sure you're a decent human, so with that, good night and good luck x
Enough said.

Our discussion was not about how bad or good is U.S. our discussion was about Putin! So I don't understand why are you bringing U.S. into discussion? I was strictly talking about Putin and you started defending him by bringing arguments about U.S. but our discussion was not about that! Your statement was "Putin is a great leader..." and then I asked you why you say that he is a good leader but you mentioned only one good thing that he prevented U.S. from starting the war with Syria. After that you have said nothing good about him.

"I am AUSTRALIAN ! Now can you actually be further removed from Russia?"

Exactly! You are FAR AWAY from Russia (of course if it is even true that you are from Australia) while I'm living here in Europe and my country has a border with Russia also my country was two times occupied by Russia, my country was part of CCCP and now it is 24 years like my country is free and independent. I know my native Lithuanian language, I know Russian language, I know English language, I know a bit of Ukrainian language, I personally know people who lives in Russia or Russia surrounding countries. So all my knowledge about Russia is personal not from Western media or so!

"...good partner because dealing with him always goes good for countries..."

Not true! For example some countries pay more than other countries for gas. Putin use gas prices as a weapon to terrorize countries which he doesn't like no matter that Russia and other countries made international agreements on prices. And I'm even not talking about Russia's boycotts on goods import from other countries because of fake reasons.

"he doesnt make any wars or put his nose into countries."

I have never heard bigger bulls**t than this!

Do you already forgot about Chechnya, Georgia and what happens at the moment in Ukraine?!

"Ukraine and Georgia is the wars of USA.They started it"

Does Ukraine attacked russia? No!
Does Georgia attacked russia? No!
Does Chechnya attacked russia? No!
So in which way these countries started it?

"U believe in such sh...t as if u always watch bbc and cnn"

My knowledge is based not on BBC or CNN. And yes in U.S. media there is propaganda but not so much as in russia's media.

P.S.
Improve your English skills because it is hard to understand you, or you know only russian language? If you know only russian language then not much you can decide about situation because information should be from different sources.

"Ukraine and Georgia mess started because of Usa putting it nose in their countries politics and Us agents made there a revolution."

First of all there was not revolution in Georgia when russia attacked it so don't talk bulls**t!
Talking about revolution in Ukraine, maybe U.S. wanted this revolution but Ukrainian people made this revolution not because U.S. wanted that but because Ukrainian people wanted that!
Putin is now sending terrorists to Ukraine because he wants to make mess in Ukraine because he can't stand the fact that he lost control over Ukraine since his doll Yanukovych is no more a president of Ukraine and people of Ukraine don't want to be slaves of russia.

First of all I'm almost sure that you are from russia not from France. And even if you are from France, France is FAR AWAY from Russia while I'm living here in Europe and my country has a border with Russia also my country was two times occupied by Russia, my country was part of CCCP and now it is 24 years like my country is free and independent. I know my native Lithuanian language, I know Russian language, I know English language, I know a bit of Ukrainian language, I personally know people who lives in Russia or Russia surrounding countries. So all my knowledge about Russia is personal not from Western media or so!

In CCCP there was no western media, people self decided what they want to do! And my country was first country wich left CCCP and we still don't want to go back! Now swallow it and deal with it you like it or not!!! :D

Also if you say that Europe is slavery then why people from russia are running to live and work in Europe and U.S. but people from Europe and U.S. doesn't run to russia? :D
My country was first country which left CCCP and we still don't want to go back, we live many times better than people now in russia. And if you call it slavery then I'm happy to be slave. :D

2) Russia claims that Ossetia wanted to be with Russia then why so many people runned from Ossetia back to Georgia and why those who left in Ossetia now doesn't want to renounce Georgian passports and take out new ones???
3) Ossetia as a separate country is only recognised only by 3 countires. :D

You're really not intelligent if you don't think there is opposition in the USA, or are those annoying teabaggers just a figment of the country's collective imagination? There are many dissenting voices on any range of issues from any type of political leanings.

As example when oppositionist Alexei Navalny was arrested Tens of thousands of people went to the streets to support oppositionist Alexei Navalny and as always government send army of OMON soldiers to scary peaceful people.
