If it’s gold and if it’s MP3, it’s not exclusively unique as Trekstor also has one with the i.Beat organix. But it’s the Samsung YP-Z5 that’s encased in 18K gold this time and that’s what makes it enviable! And that to in honor of a million Z5’s being sold till now. Mercer and Samsung will be auctioning off 10 YP-Z5’s encased in genuine 18K Gold and not only is the player made of gold, even the box it comes in is adorned with that shiny yellow stuff.
The YP-Z5 was designed by Paul Mercer, the man who designed the iPod’s interface, which is why it ranks as one of the best looking MP3 players to be released this year. Hence each of these exclusive players will have Paul Mercer’s signature on the rear. The pricing on these rare Z5’s will start at $1, but Samsung is expecting them to go for 120,000 each (Yen we suppose). This auction is probably only available in Japan so all the insanely loaded gadget freaks here need to nurse their desires by just reading this write up!
