BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY): Passport, Classic Get The 24Kt Gold Treatment

If your BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) Passport or Classic just don’t cut it as status symbols, you may want to take a look at 24-karat gold versions of the smartphones which third-party vendors are now putting out.

According to Geeky Gadgets, BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s Passport, the iconic qwerty keyboard smartphone with a square display, has gotten the 24-karat gold treatment from the people at Goldgenie.

The gold BlackBerry Passport is not cheap, however, as it has a list price of £1,247.50 or about $1,900 which fortunately also includes taxes. If normal 24-karat gold just isn’t your thing, there’s a rose gold version for £1289.17 (about $1,950) and a platinum version for £1,330.83 (just over $2,000).

According to Goldgenie, all of these special versions of the Passport comes with their Clear-Coat full-body protection which has a lifetime no questions replacement guarantee.

On the other hand, if the Passport is not your cup of tea, you can now also apparently get one of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s most recently-released phones, the BlackBerry Classic, in gold.

According to N4BB, Canadian rapper and BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) supporter Drake has commissioned a 24-karat gold version of the Classic.

N4BB’s source, a certain William of WNG Supplies, said that the phone is plated with 24-kt gold around the edges except for its bottom edge and frets. If you can overlook that, you can get the phone for £1999 or a little over $3,000.

However, though certainly pricey, these gold BlackBerry smartphones have nothing on these: the most expensive phones on the market today. Some of them, like the bottom Nokia Arte 8800, are just feature phones. However, that Nokia phone, the cheapest of the bunch, will set you back a whopping $134,000.
