Cellular News has pointed us in the direction of Midas Touch International, a UK-based company that offers a custom gold-plating service for Nokia 8800 handsets, as well as offering the service for a selected range of other phones. The gold plating comes in three different colours, 24k classic gold, Rose gold and Modern gold.
London-based entrepreneur Laban Roomes who runs Midas Touch International, a specialist gold-plating organisation, has been inundated with requests for his new 'ring-bling' Nokia 8800 phones – which sell complete for around ┬£800.
"It's been like a gold rush" said Roomes. "We started gold-plating the latest Nokia 8800 in November and business has been booming ever since. It seems the whole world wants one. So now we're looking to set up a world-class distribution channel both in the UK and in Europe"
The company works with Nokia technicians, and provides certificates of authenticity, as well as providing a warranty on the gold plating itself.
I'm not sure my 6630 would look any good gold plated though…
