GOT TO HAVE IT // Lamborghini Cellphone
Russian site Mail has the first details on the new Lamborghini lineup, which includes two gold-plated feature phones, a tablet, and an Android smartphone. The devices are expected to be released in Russia this August.
Drawing inspiration from his previous experiences in the field of engineering and design, Tonino Lamborghini has extended the concept of luxury to products like Raging Bull smokes, the designer chess set, and cigar lighters and cutters. Marking the brand’s 30th anniversary of the fashion line, Lamborghini earlier launched Spyder Supreme Diamond cell phones, and has now introduced three new luxury phones and an Android tablet for Russians with deep pockets.
The TL700 smartphone has a body made of metal and crocodile skin with sapphire glass protecting the display, which might go some way to explaining why Lamborghini is asking 90,000 rubles ($2,758) for an Android 2.3 device with a 3.7-inch 800 x 480 display and a 5-megapixel camera. Meanwhile, the L2800 tablet has the same tempting blend of high price and middling specs, with a 9.7-inch 1024 x 768 display, a 1.2GHz processor, and 512MB RAM.
The design isn’t quite as ostentatious as the phones, without a hint of gold in sight, but the price of 75,000 rubles ($2,298) should at least give you something to mention at dinner parties!
