iPhone6 in gold on sale in #Dubai ahead of real thing...

Call it the Midas touch, but iPhone 6 models in gold are like gold dust, with the company behind bringing the most-wanted gadgets in gold claiming that UAE residents can’t have enough of them, never mind the steep price.

“We have a total of 438 orders as of last night,” says a pleased Amjad Ali, CEO of Gold & Co London, the  company that makes Burj Al Arab-branded 24K gold iPads and iPhones, among other solid gold gadgets.

“The UAE is our biggest market,” he adds, maintaining that there have been more than 150 orders from the UAE alone, and the number is growing. “The local order-book is insane,” he beams.

“The pre-orders have been coming in for six months now,” says Ali, who said that he had to get back to his customers once it became clear that there were going to be more than one iPhone 6 model.
