What's Hot: 24k iPhone 4 What's Not: 24k Nokia Oro
Wow Factor: Stuart Hughes' fantastical creations have always been eye-catching. This time, it's his 24k solid Gold iPhone 4 that has our attention. Check this beast of a phone out; launched in March this year, the gold iPhone is one of Stuart Hughes' more ambitious designs and boasts a massive circa of 150 grams of 24k gold.

Also, the handset has 32GB of space and includes is a luxurious hand finished wallet made from real Ostrich foot...impressive! Priced at £21,995 (approx Rs 16 lakh), it is available on Stuart Hughes' website.

Ouch Factor: With its gold frame and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal front keys, the Nokia Oro may well be a luxury version of the highly customised Nokia C7 smartphone. But it hardly holds a candle to the more pimped up, limited edition iPhone 4.  

Plated in 18k gold, the Oro comes with an 8MP camera and is pre-loaded with Symbian Anna, the latest Nokia OS But what lets us down is the 8GB of internal storage capacity. Priced at of $1,126 (approx Rs 50,990), the Nokia Oro is expected to be available in the third quarter of this year.
