When at Mobile World Congress you can come across some random and odd things. This one gets filed under that category. What you see in the photo above (and video) is a custom chromed Nokia Lumia 900.
Now, we have to point out that this was not done by Nokia but rather one of their Ambassador’s, George Salcedo (@Salcedo_George), who took it upon himself to track down a place to do this kind of thing. In short, the ability to “chrome plastic” (and in this case polycarbonate) is evidently now achievable, if you can find the right place to do it.
We’re not going to lie, it’s a tad heavy but the cool touch makes it totally worth it. Maybe someday we’ll all have metal Lumias, eh?
