from mobileguerilla.com:

"Austrian jeweler Peter Aloisson has created an iPhone 3G mod called the "Kings Button" and it''s worth $2.5 million.The jeweler replaced the home button with a 6.6 carat diamond and the case outline with a solid 18 carat yellow, rose and white gold on top of which he placed 138 smaller diamonds."

Yikes, a 6.6 carat diamond! I could have found a better use for it!

I remember a while ago some guy came on here bragging about how he paved the edge of his iPhone...but I think he was full of s*** since he only posted once.

And looking at the phone...its a cool concept, but I hate the yellow gold feature...and can think of far better ways to use a 6.6 ct diamond that sticking it into my cell phone. While I adore my iPhone (by far the coolest phone I''ve ever owned) I think $50.00 for a case is as high as I''d go to "spoil" it....

On the bright side - when his iPhone suddenly becomes dated/un-cool - which it will shortly...he has all the tools to make a fabulous custom ring!



And yes - this annoys me too....

Uh, this really annoys me. I hope this person gives to charity because that useless thing could feed a lot of hungry people

Agreed.

And what if you lose it? I mean, yea it''s insured, but do you know how many iPhones/iPods/BBs my FI finds on the train on his way to work...or in cabs? Too many to count.

So stupid. I''m all for doing whatever makes you happy, but this is really dumb.

Total waste. What about gals who keep their cell phones in their purses? The diamonds would never see the light of day!

Gross. I wouldn''t even consider it. Imagine dropping it. You''d probably lose 2 diamonds for every drop...
