Early last month we came across photos of a gold-plated BlackBerry Passport, but details were scarce. This might be the source of these photos - Vietnamese company Mavang is doing custom gold plating of Passports.
The square-screened business smartphone features a forged stainless steel plate for durability, but is also visible on the outside as a metal rim.
It's exactly that rim that is gold-plated with 24K gold in a process that takes between three and four hours, including time for disassembly.
The price varies between VND 8,000,000 and 10,000,00 ($375-$470) depending on customizations required by the customer - carving a message or a business logo.
Thanks to Nguyen for sending this in!
Really thought I was the only one in that position! I've been second guessing the 1520 based on some complaints about screen sensitivity issues
For you, but as far as the sales go its a big hit for blackberry.
Black Berry Blend is really a unique application.
