How is it to own a gold painted phone? One can easily become paranoid and it certainly isn't a phone to take around with you in your local bar or at any other events. Be sure that in 5 minutes after your first conversation, your phone is gone. What if you accidentally throw it to the ground? Nokia phones are resistant by tradition, but you won't let your gold on the ground. Anyway, some economists have suggested that in time of economic crisis the best investments are those in gold, how about a 18 carat gold painted phone?
