Samsung has announced the launch of a luxury 'Gold Edition' of the i8910 HD, the multimedia powerhouse that took Best Media Phone honours at the Mobile Choice Awards this year.
The new version of the Symbian 5th Edition handset is available in two colours – Champagne Gold or Luxury Brown (an epithet that doesn't exactly get the heart racing, but still) - and both will be inlaid with 24 karat gold.
According to Ubergizmo, both luxury variants will come with a selection of extra goodies such as a leather case, a TV-out cable and a mini-cradle. Specs include a 3.7-inch AMOLED touch-screen, fast HSDPA data transfer, Wi-Fi, GPS, an eight-megapixel camera, HD video recording and 16GB of internal memory.
European release is expected this month. No price was mooted, nor if it will be exclusive to Orange like the original i8910HD.
