Samsung Unveils Gold-Plated Phone For Olympic Games

With the Olympics coming to Beijing, China next year, electronics manufacturers know it’s time to step up to the plate and to offer something ridiculous and expensive to commemorate the event. Samsung today announced a special version of the P318 Anycall phone in a stunning 18-karat gold paint job.Combined with the black finish, it looks like an alright phone, especially next to the D&G RAZR from Motorola.

One thing is for certain though. China will be getting the phone and it’ll be available in select markets only. With no price or launch date set, who knows how Samsung is going to play this out. They could charge $500, they could charge $5000. We’ll wait and see what happens.
