Gresso iPad uses 200-year-old African Blackwood

Russian-based design house Gresso, which specializes in making ultra-exclusive and expensive versions of popular consumer electronics, has now unveiled its latest creation. Apple's iPad has received the company's treatment, which includes 200-year-old African Blackwood for its case and an 18K gold Apple logo. No other details about the Gresso iPad are known, including what model has been selected.

As is usually the case when it comes to ultra-expensive items, pricing isn't being discussed, but is likely to be revealed when the exclusive iPad goes on sale on New Year's Eve. [via PhoneArena]

    Yes indeed

    The same treatment for the iPhone 4? $4,500

    On the other hand they seem to have added Java to the iPhone!
