The Black Diamond concept phone for VIPN is actually going to be made in limited quantity.

Designer Jaren Goh came up with the Black Diamond concept phone a couple of month ago. Esato (Thanks A Razaq) reports that a Swiss company called VIPN will be making the Black Diamond in 2007.

I am not sure if this is for real, as the VIPN site states that a Black Diamond phone will sell for an unbelievable 300,000 USD. On the other hand Goldvish mobile phones are supposed to be available for up to 1 Mio. USD. There are only 5 numbered unique pieces going to be made. The diamond they integrate in the phone must be of decent size to rectify that price tag.The Black Diamond phone runs Windows Mobile 5 on an Intel CPU. Other features include 2 inch color screen Wi-fi, SD card slot and quadband GSM.
