We have mentioned the special edition Gold BlackBerry Bold 9900 a few times in the past couple of weeks and although you can't actually buy it, one arrived with me yesterday to play with thanks to BlackBerry UK.

Although the gold material isn't actually gold the fact that the device is not for sale I suppose makes it priceless and just as desirable as the crown jewels (so my brain tells me).

RIM is giving out the Gold 9900 to a few celebs and Olympic gold medal winners. I am neither of these, so I am sad to say that this one will be going back to RIM shortly, although I am tempted to emigrate just so I can keep it.

The gold won't be everyone's cup of tea, but in my opinion it looks awesome. I'm not into 'bling' but there is something special about this one. So above you will see a quick unboxing and look around the device. Aside from the gold there isn't anything that sets it apart from the standard BlackBerry Bold 9900 but I think I have fallen in love with it.

I'm off to a secret country now. Find me if you can RIM!
