A gold stylus for the Midas touch

Sharp goes Hollywood for its new smart phone

Gizmodo

Sharp always seemed like a sensible brand, doing its share to come out with new technologies without being so flashy. So we're slightly disappointed that it has gone Hollywood for a moment with a solid gold stylus for a new smart phone coming out in Japan.

Nintendo also made a gold stylus for the DS Lite , but that's different. ( Paris Hilton reportedly designed one of their special editions, after all.) Besides, the Nintendo stylus didn't cost $536, which is what the Sharp version will set you back. As Gizmodo notes, that's almost as much as the price of the phone--assuming that it isn't a solid-gold edition too.
