Goldgenie Commemorates Cecil the Lion

By Tom Allen

Several HTC phones have been customised in the past, with special logos and designs, including the One M8 Tattoo (HTC Takes The Needle to a Smartphone) and One M9 Ink (Inking Up With HTC). UK-based Goldgenie has now decided to release a £1,580 ($2,465) One M9 to commemorate the death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, who was shot and killed by a hunter last month. The phone, with an engraving of Cecil and a message reading ‘For Cecil and His Kingdom’ is plated in gold. 10% of the proceeds will go to the Friends of Hwange charity.
