    It would appear that HTC is not content to watch Apple hog all the glory with a "gold" device. The floundering smartphone OEM plans to offer a very limited edition 18-carat Gold plated HTC One! How limited edition you might ask? HTC is planning on building only five of these 18-carat gold smartphones, and they aren't actually doing it just to spite Apple either. In fact, they were already planning to offer this device. It is meant to commemorate the 18th anniversary of the MOBO awards to recognize black and urban music in the UK. Each gold HTC One will hold a price tag of £2,750, or about $4400 USD. Here's a quote with their full presser,

    I wonder which five lucky folks HTC will "allow" the privilege of purchasing this blinged out superphone?

    Methinks the signature on the back of this thing should say "MOFO".


    Suuuure, buy your Gold plated phone. In 6 - 8 months, it will be obsolete anyway. Having a gold phone is the only way it will keep or increase in value over time. :D
