Fans of the exclusive will enjoy the £1,597 BlackBerry Q10 being put together by Goldgenie. The company, which is known for its outlandish treatment of conventional smartphones, has previously launched the likes of a white gold iPhone 5, priced at just under £2k. 

The gold BlackBerry Q10 comes SIM-free and unlocked, and sports the same features as the standard Q10. The difference is that the phone is wrapped in a 24ct gold bezel and comes in a special luxury finish box. 

At £1,597, it sits at the top of the current smartphone price range. Goldgenie has also given the more-pricey Porsche Design P9981 a seeing to. Again, the phone is wrapped in a 24ct gold bezel. The price this time? A neat £4,397.

Of course, you could just choose to pick up the BlackBerry Q10 SIM-free in conventional guise for £534. The phone, which we think is BlackBerry's best Qwerty handset yet, will get a white version soon, but is already available in traditional BlackBerry black.

The baby of the Lint team, Hunter has been a tech fan since he bought his first MiniDisc..and what a waste of money that was. He began writing about electronics at the age of 16 and hasn't stopped since. Nowadays he fulfils his mobile phone and gaming obsession whilst attempting to distract people from his bizarre name. Regular meetings with the Gladiators crew see Hunter often returning to work battered and bruised. Considers himself a music obsessive, was once the most highly decorated scout in the country. Fan of trousers.
