TrekStor Gold i.Beat

TrekStor today unveiled an extremely limited special edition music player dubbed the i.Beat organix Gold. Called the world's expensive MP3 player by its German creator, the Gold version's shell is built from 18-karat gold plating and has its OLED screen surrounded by 63 one-karat diamonds. Even the chain includes aquamarine gems, TrekStor says, and the entire assembly requires 100 hours of hand assembly by the Mannheim-based jeweler Wenthe. The player stores as much as 2GB of music in MP3, OGG, or WMA formats and takes advantage of extras such as FM radio and line-in or voice recording.

The unique i.Beat organix was originally custom-ordered by the Midland F1 team owner Alex Shnaider, says TrekStor, but is now built on request by the company for international customers. The player is available to North American buyers through Amazon, which retails the device for $20,000. [via Uncrate]
