BlackBerry's Passport is already a fairly exclusive device by dint of the company's small market share, but the Canadian smartphone maker just kicked things up a notch. It's now selling a very limited edition (just 50 units) Black & Gold Passport that lets you flout convention with more gusto ...

Microsoft has jumped on that hot new gold-hued phone craze with special edition models of its Lumia 830 and 930 handsets. Yes, we're mocking Redmond a bit for being late to a nearly two-year old trend, but we'd add that the subtle gold accenting on the phones' edges actually looks great. Both are ...

In keeping with the gilded trend, UK provider O2 is giving away an 18-carat gold HTC One to one lucky customer. Each HTC One sold at O2 stores between today and Sunday will come with a golden ...

It turns out that 18 carat gold is slightly too soft to be a sensible material for smartphones. We've been hands-on with one of just five MOBO-branded gold HTC Ones, which are evidently a lot less subtle than the gold iPhone 5s (shown top right). While the exclusive $4,500 handset definitely wasn'...

And just like that, Samsung Gulf has announced the gold-trimmed Galaxy S 4, complemented by either brown or pink plastic for the guys and girls, respectively (dare we say it). We don't know whether these fresh editions will ever come to markets outside the Middle East, but Samsung's timing couldn'...

We like strapping things to our heads that replace the bad sounds with good ones, so we're very excited about Creative's new headsets. The company is launching a pair of audiophile-quality cans, as well as one for the audiophile on a limited budget. First up, there's the Aurvana Platinum and Gold,...
