An Italian manufacturer is selling Putinphones as an appeal to Russian patriotism.

According to Russia Today, "Supporters of Russian President Vladimir Putin now have a new extravagant way of expressing their affection. An Italian luxury brand has launched a limited line of golden iPhones bearing the image of the leader."

Perla Penna is quoted as saying that, “The most powerful person according to Forbes and Time – President Putin has come to symbolize the new generation, the leader of will and resolution.” 

As reported by Russia Today, "The Caviar iPhone5S Supremo Putin, created by Perla Penna jewelry house, went on sale with a price tag of 147,000 rubles (about US$4,352).  Putin’s portrait, which is engraved on the gadget’s 18-carat gold case, is accompanied by the Russian coat of arms and the first two lines of the Russian national anthem." 

Perla Penna hopes to cash in on Russian patriotism.
