3 iPhone Cases for the Rich or Spendthrift
Considering the ephemeral nature of technological gadgets it seems incredible to me that anyone would spend 10, 50 or even up to 100 times more than the price of an iPhone to sheath theirs, but there must be demand for such things even in this mean economy, because the following 3 products are still on the market.
1. For the price of a house in many parts, the status crazy can blow $108,880 on the Golden Delicious from Germany’s GnG. This case consists of a 1mm subshell inlaid with sturdy carbon fiber. The outer frame is coated in 140 grams of 18k gold and features a regal logo sporting, count them, 400 diamonds. Of course, like most status symbols this one is customizable. By all means, have the logo read whatever you like and choose the number of diamonds in it.
2. For those in the market for gaudy status, who may not quite have the budget for the Golden Delicious, fear not. You too can have gold and diamonds studding your iPhone. For the bargain price of $20,000 Case-Mate will furnish you with a gold carbon fiber leather case handcrafted with 42 diamonds protruding from it. The company assures potential buyers that all of these diamonds are the highest quality-VVS1 clarity and H color.
3. I did a search for iphone cases in the 15,000 to 5,000 dollar range and came up with nada. The fact that there are no other iPhone cases in this range could spell opportunity for some company. Or the dearth of products could simply indicate the lack of demand, by the majority of middle class folks, to spend so much money on something so completely frivolous.
Not as lofty as the two cases above, but definitely luxurious, the newly released Japan Texture iPhone cases are a cool $1000 each. These handcrafted cases come in 4 different varieties of a lacquered black, red, white, and black look that was created under the auspices of a Japanese historian. If you like the anachronistic joy of wedding imperial Japan with cutting edge technology than SoftBank Mobile has these cases for you. However, they are not for sale outside of Japan. Since you have to fly to Japan to buy one the price tag is more like $4,000 or more. Perhaps if you throw in 5 geisha, you too could manage to spend 108,880 in a night.
