Apparently, wherever there is news of US President, Donald Trump, news of Russian President, Vladimir Putin, is not far of – even outside of political circles. If you have been up in international political news of recent, you would understand the connection. And so it is that following on the heels of the gold-plated Trump iPhone is a Gold and Titanium Caviar Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin.
It is safe to say (even if untrue) that it looks like Putin fans are not letting Trump fans get away with a luxury phone in honour of the Big D. The Caviar Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin is from Russia with love. Amazing stuff.
The company behind this novelty is Russian firm, Caviar. The Trump iPhone has Donald’s image on the back; this luxury 3310 model has Putin’s image on the back as well. Bedfellows these.
But owning a Gold & Titanium Caviar Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin will stand you apart from the maddening crowd of nostalgic users who will throng to buy the retro model. You would be carrying around a beautiful device worth about $1700.
If that is not pure class, we don’t know what class is. It still falls far short of $151,000 for the gold-plated Trump iPhone. But then, you already knew that an iPhone 7 and the Nokia 3310 are not exactly in the same league; didn’t you?
Psst: We wonder when we shall see a Sai Baba Generalissimo platinum smartphone in these parts, after all, we are not exactly strangers to luxury versions of phones. You will remember that years ago, the Nigerian government once ordered gold iPhones for the country’s Independence day celebrations.
