Sony Ericsson does the bling thing

Its luxury model is pink with 24k gold casing.

Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson has been strutting its stuff in Vegas this week with some new designs, which is par for the course in Sin City. And its latest luxury handset would fit right in with the chorus line at the Bellagio.

The ostentatiously named "Precious Gold T650i" is outfitted with 24k plating to frame its 1.9-inch mineral-glass display, which complements a rose-tinted keypad. Luxurylaunches quotes a Sony Ericsson exec as saying the gaudy talker "evolved from a consumer's request for a mobile that was like a piece of her jewelry--glamorous, expensive and exquisite in quality."

Which, we assume, is a good reason not to widely publicize the price. We do know, however, that the Hilton-esque handset includes a 3.2-megapixel camera--perfect for capturing the requisite shots of you with Elvis impersonators.
