The Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai is perhaps the world's most luxurious hotel, and the latest addition continues that tradition. The seven-star hotel is now giving 24-carat gold-plated iPads from Gold & Co to guests for use during their stay.

Burjalarab
The iPads will act as a 'virtual concierge', offering information on restaurants in the hotel, as well as spa treatments and butler services. They carry the Burj Al Arab's logo on the back and they are available for purchase in the hotel's boutique.

Gold-iPad

It's the pad, the pad with the Midas touch.
(Its U.I.'s touch)
Such a cold iPad
Beckons you to enter its web, world wide
Using Wifi

Golden pixels it pours in your eyes
But its Retina display can't disguise
For an Apple fan knows when they've used it
It's an add-on charge
From Dubai's
Gold-iPad
Apple fans, beware of its shell of gold
Its shell is cold…
