Fake-diamond phone defines ugliness

BenQ-Siemens will auction it in Taiwan--good luck

It's behavior like this that gave rise to the phrase, "Everything in moderation." This "over-pimped" BenQ-Siemens phone, according to Gearfuse, will be auctioned at the IT Month conference in Taiwan. Those aren't real diamonds, so don't expect it to fetch million-dollar phone prices , but it does apparently bear the signature of a Taiwanese singer. Who would buy such a mini-monstrosity? Why, the owner of this beautiful Mercedes , of course.
