$12,000 BlackBerry Torch 9800 is covered with 18k gold
Just when we thought that the iPhone 4 covered in 18k gold was stunning enough, but now we're seeing the BlackBerry Torch 9800 getting the same majestic treatment.

Thanks to aid of the midas touch, RIM's latest next-generation smartphone recently saw itself completely covered in nothing more than 18 carat solid gold. Needless to say that it supplants the other color offerings that are available, but its healthy source of bling will instantly separate it from just about any other phone out there on the market. The gold covered smartphone comes to us courtesy of Alexander Amosu and weighs in with a staggering 39 grams of gold.

So if you really want to surprise that significant other come Valentine's Day, just be ready to shell out a whooping $12,000 for this radiant golden beauty.
