World's Costliest iPad 2: Gold, Diamonds and Dinosaur Bones!
| by Anuradha Shetty |
Plan to own an exquisite piece of technology, with a hint of history in it? Well, the Stuart Hughes’ version of the iPad 2 is just the snazzier sibling of the regular iPad 2, which you might want to own if you have £5,000,000 on you. For the rest of us, the iPad 2 Gold History Edition is just as exquisite, as it could possibly get.
The 'Gold'en boy..
The Apple logo that carefully rests at the back of the iPad 2 has been set with 12.5 carats of Flawless Diamonds, 53 of them encrusted to form the signatory Apple. This has been set on a back made of 24K gold, weighing a total of 2,000 grams. Its front frame has a touch of history to it. It has been made out of the oldest existing rock, Ammolite.
The front panel, with a hint of history..
This 75-million years old rock, sourced from Canada isn’t the only historical influence on the iPad 2. Apparently, on the front frame of this iPad 2, pieces of the T-REX Dinosaur’s thigh bone has been used, which according to Hughes was splintered and shaved into the rock, which has then been given a jewel finish. Adding some bling is the single-cut, 8.5 carat flawless diamond beautifully set in the centre, surrounded by 12 other flawless diamonds.
It isn't clear whether this limited edition gadget - there are only two of this kind - comes included with the 3G and wireless services.
