Toshiba entices the rich kids with the invitation-only Cosmic Shiner

Mobile phones

It’s a high-end update of its fashion-friendly (but technically average) FanFun 815T , replacing the customisable exterior with a covering of diamonds put together by Kansai Yamamoto, as well as a personalised handmade lacquer box for storage.

But that’s not all – you also get the Prestige Gold membership service, which offers you various agency arrangements such as hotel and restaurant bookings as well as other ‘special privileges’ (we’d rather not ask). If Toshiba likes the look of you, an ID code will give you the option to purchase one – $4,000 from April.
