Elton John launches blinged charity iPods

Elton John has launched an iPod range, blinging up a line of nanos for his charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The "stunning" starburst Swarovski encrusted nanos have been designed exclusively for Elton and the cause, and are available in both 8GB and 16GB models.

100 of each colour has been created in black, blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, silver and yellow.

On sale from Goldgenie and Selfridges, the 8GB version will cost you £399.99 while the 16GBer will set you back £449.99.

Goldgenie is including "Rocket Man: The Definitive Hits CD" with every order, something they described as an "extra bonus", but we guess that depends on your music tastes...
