One-of-a-Kind HTC Touch charity editions up for auction
If you’ve been thinking about picking up an HTC Touch but have held off because the design is just too sober, think again: the company has collaborated with Nicholas designer Nic Wong to create four limited editions of the smartphone. Ranging from the subtle (a powder-blue Anaglypta-style design) to the strident (crazed red and white triangles), each handset is unique as in one-of-a-kind. All proceeds from the four sales – which are taking place on eBay - will go to the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Now for the bad news: if you’re not in Singapore, forget about bidding. Sadly HTC are only willing to ship to addresses there, so if you fancy a unique Touch in your own country you’ll have to pester them to come to a similar arrangement wherever it is you live. Still, I wonder if the eventual buyers can write off the cost as a charitable donation?
With the auctions ending on April 19th, as of writing the bids are just kicking off: the cheapest is at 1.05 Singapore dollars ($0.78) while the highest bid is 151 Singapore dollars ($111.49).
