This Dubai Hotel Sells iPads in 24-karat Gold Cases for $10K

Apple did not become one of the richest company in the world by selling their products for rock bottom prices, but even Apple draws the line at just under $1000 for the most expensive iPad model they ship (for those interested, it's a 4th generation iPad with WiFi & Cellular antennas and 128 GB of flash storage). However, for those of us who know Dubai and its iconic seven star Burj Al Arab hotel with private helicopter pad and personal beaches, it won't come as a surprise that each one of the 202 lap-of-luxury suites come with a 24 karat gold iPad that functions as a remote control for almost anything around. The price? ... $10,200 in the hotel gift shop.

It is to be expected that each iPad is engraved with the company's logo and slightly oxymoronic slogan: "Stay Different." The tablets are produced by the British company Gold & Co., which has its offices in London, England. For those interested in their other gold products, have a look at their website. The company also produces golden Blackberries and iPhones, which are priced similarly to the golden iPad. They are even kind enough to provide the phones SIM unlocked!

    Theres nothi ironic about it, most of the labor in dubai comes from other countries. When you are rich in oil money, with a small population there is a need to be labor work, and women Arab ones do not work at all.
