While Apple struggle to keep up with demand for the gold iPhone 5S, somewhere in the distant middle-east, Samsung are looking to get their own piece of the action. Earlier today, Samsung Mobile Arabia tweeted this:

Quite innovative I must say. How come no one ever thought about that? Oh wait… they already have? Ah…. Steve Jobs is probably rolling in his grave right now, wondering why Tim Cook and Co. forgot to procure a patent for this. Or maybe they already did?
Erm….somebody already beat Apple to that too?
Nokia Microsoft you say? Yes, Nokia have been making gold phones for as long as I remember. But I guess Apple made it more…. Appleish?
This just another case of two giants fighting and the grass, aka consumers, suffering for it. These guys just stay copying and trying to trump out each other while we the consumers keep offering ourselves as guinea pigs by giving in to our impulse buy tendencies.
At this point, phonebloks are not looking like much of a flawed idea to me anymore. We seriously need a break from all these noise.
One question though, if you already own a Samsung Galaxy S4, would you trade it in for this golden reincarnation immediately it becomes available in Nigeria, if it ever becomes available?
