Nokia 8800, Diamond-Studded Edition

Artisan Thomas Heyerdahl took Nokia’s 8800 handset and has crafted a version laced with 112 authentic diamonds, Engadget reports, saying that only 100 of the individually-numbered devices will be made available.

The diamonds total 0.7 carats per phone, and “while the bulk of these things will be sold in select outlets for 30,000 Norwegian kroner ($5,933), the first one is set to be auctioned for charity to the highest bidder.” What a way to draw a little attention from a expected announcement today from you-know-who.
