On their site, you can custom make your Thingamagoop for $100.

LG Black Label phone

Looking like a cross between Motorola’s K1m KRZR, an Apple iPhone, and a bar of Scharffenberger chocolate, LG’s Black Label phone is quite the handsome (and practically edible) gadget. It also sports a 5 megapixel camera. How many candy bars can you name that have one of those, hmm?
