iPhone 3G gets dipped in gold

They've made gold MacBook Pros, and gold iMacs, and now Computer Choppers have turned their attention to blinging the iPhone 3G.

Apparently it's taken a while to plate on the gold because of "poor quality plastic Apple used for the iPhone 3G" (tut tut) but now the company is claiming to have delivered the first "iPhone 3G with 24K yellow gold housing and bezel".

Quips the team: "Some other companies were hyping it up like they had done it before the phone was even released but they don't have photos to back up the talk".

Custom options are going to be available but there's no price as yet, but we strongly suggest you start saving.
