Goldgenie has introduced the new Elton John AIDS Foundation Starburst iPod nano. These customized fourth-generation iPod nano units feature color coordinated Swarovski crystals embedded into surface, as well as John’s signature laser engraved onto the rear. In addition, each Starburst nano also includes “The Rocket Man: The Definitive Collection CD.” Limited to only 100 of each color and capacity, proceeds from sales of these limited-edition units will help raise funds which will go towards helping the millions of HIV and AIDS sufferers worldwide. The Elton John AIDS Foundation Starburst iPod nanos are available for pre-order now for £348 (~$495) for 8GB models and £392 (~$557) for 16GB units. The Starburst iPod nano is expected to begin shipping on February 9.

It’s good that they come pre-loaded with music, because when Elton John gets the internet turned off, at the iPod will still have some songs already on it.  You’ll just be listening to Rocket Man for the rest of your life, but really, it could be worse. wink
