This 24-carat gold Kindle is the most expensive e-reader ever

Amosu Coutore says that using a gold Kindle will allow owners to stand out from the crowd, but we are pretty sure the device will mostly allow them to stand out to thieves.

Amazon's Kindle may have recently gotten its price slashed to $114, but that isn't preventing companies from charging much more for the device. But in the case with this 24-carat Gold-plated Kindle 3G, perhaps it's worth it.

The golden e-reader comes via Amosu Coutore, which was known previously for offering gold-plated versions of the iPad, iPhone, and Blackberry. For $1950, opulent ebook readers can show just how well-read and well-off they really are.
