q10i2The Blackberry Q10 when bought off-contract is a little pricey, especially considering that one could get more popular devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5 at those prices. However for the hardcore Blackberry fan, we guess the fact that the Q10 comes with the latest Blackberry 10 and a familiar physical QWERTY keyboard layout could justify its price. However if you have some extra cash to splash, the folks over a Goldgenie have created a Blackberry Q10 which has been made out of gold! Yes, as you can see in the photo above, this gold plated Q10 will feature a 24ct gold-plated bezel, and a 24ct gold integrated panel beneath the key pad which we have to say is pretty excessive. Apart from its luxurious gold-plated treatment, the handset’s hardware remains exactly the same as its more wallet-friendly counterpart, but if you have £1597 ($2,478) to spare, you can buy one for yourself via Goldgenie’s website.
