Victoria Beckham has a $35k iPhone

Victoria Beckham arriving at JFK airport in New York (2/8)

Victoria Beckham’s iPhone is worth more than most people’s cars . . . and definitely more than my bus pass, which incidentally I got laminated yesterday. Now let’s see it ruined by some homeless guy’s urine I accidentally sit in! Not gonna happen! From Gearlog:

Posh Spice spent your year’s salary on an iPhone. Yep, you know those crazy gold-covered iPhones that we always assume no one actually buys? Victoria Beckham apparently owns one. The iPhone 4 (called, oddly the iPhone 4G on the outfitter’s site) is covered in 150 grams of 24 carat gold. It apparently takes weeks to craft and runs £21,995.00 ($35,354.76).

The 36-year-old former Spice Girl was flipping through the absurdly expensive handset after landing in JFK, when the paparazzi did what paparazzi do. It also appears to be 75 percent covered with a case–because when you buy a $35,000 phone, the last thing you want to do is show it off to everyone.

When the revolution begins, you will look back at the moment Posh Spice showed off her $35K iPhone as the tipping point. Sure, in Egypt they revolt because they want more freedom, but here in the West people will take to the streets to protest the extreme excess of the wealthy. I mean, doesn’t Posh know how many homeless people she could feed with that kind of money? Also, has anyone seen my “Little Red Book” by Mao Zedong?
