I am always puzzled when I see a $800+ purse at Macy’s. Many people carrying them have less than that amount of money inside the purse itself. I know I have less than $200 in my own $25 Fossil wallet… That is why I was scratching my head while looking at the list of swanky over priced cases that our buddy Al Sacco of CIO.com compiled. Why would you get a $20,000 or even a $500 case for a device that cost you less than that. Even $200 is WAY over the top in my humble opinion.
If you are just looking for fashion I think a new theme would go a long way. If you really wanted to personalize a $100+ Colorware job is not unheard of. On the other hand a diamond encrusted Bold or Pearl or any BlackBerry is just idiotic as far as I can tell. It essentially ties something that holds value to something that loses value very quickly. What are you going to do with a diamond encrusted Pearl or even a Bold in 2 years?
Just look at the diamond encrusted Pearl to the right. That custom job runs for about $17,200 + delivery… Un-flipping-believable!
