You can't take your cell phone to the afterlife, but now you can do the next best thing. Autograph company in Novosibirsk offers iPhone-style gravestones for around $1000.

'The main activity of our company Autograph, which is located in Krasnoobsk [suburb of Novosibirsk], is associated with laser engraving,' Pavel Kalyuk told NGS.

'We began to make monuments just to attract attention.' But they found there is demand for the eternal mobile phones, and promise they can make Samsung headstones, too. 

The first order was sent to Krasnoyarsk, he said.
