    Lamborghini Debuts 'Luxury' Android Phone and Tablet; Maybe More Ugly than Luxury


    It would seem that some wealthy folks have more money than sense, because this next story is a real head-scratcher. When thinking of Lamborghini, most people envision a powerful, agressive and masculine looking exotic sports car careening down winding European roads. That isn't all they do because of course they are going to "cash in" on the celebrity of their brand name. Lamborghini has decided to jump into the Android smartphone and tablet industry as well. However, you would think that a high-end automobile manufacturer that competes with the likes of Ferrari and Porsche would actually go to the trouble of creating a high-end device, wouldn't you? You would be mistaken in this instance.

    The above pictured phone, called the TL700 comes with the following specs:
    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • 3.7 inch WVGA sapphire crystal display
    • Qualcomm processor of unknown speed
    • 5MP rear camera & VGA front-facing camera
    • 4GB of internal memory
    • 1,400 mAh battery



    Apparently, all that is required to get super-wealthy folks to part with their money is to slap some exotic materials like gold and crocodile skin on last year's low-end Android hardware, then chisel the Lamborghini name on the side. For this amazing "feat of engineering" that they call a "luxury" phone, you only have to fork over $2,750 bucks.

    Seriously? Gingerbread? 4GB of Storage and a 1,400 mAH battery? You can get better phones for free right now! And what is with that design? It looks like a gold-plated piece of turtle road-kill for crying out loud!



    Oh yeah... there also happens to be a Lamborghini Android tablet, called the L2800 as well. And, while this one is not nearly as hideous as the phone, it is still ridiculously priced for what you get:
    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (reportedly will receive an update to Android 4.0 ICS)
    • 9.7 inch, 1024768 pixels sapphire crystal display
    • 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor (probably single-core)
    • 5MP rear camera
    • 2MP front-facing camera
    • 512MB of RAM
    • 4GB of internal memory
    • MicroSD card support
    • Good speakers on the back

    You can have this piece of Audi-owned Italian engineering for only $2,290... What a bargain! Wow! 512MB of RAM! That's like... a whole lot nowadays isn't it? Well... isn't it? <Sigh>

    At that price, it better be able to take a bullet for me! What do you guys think?

    Agree that I haven't seen anything so ugly lately. Missed the boat on these.

    All I'm going to say is:

    Compare the price and performance of the Lamborghini whatever to;

    A) Corvette Z06
    B) Mustang Shelby Cobra GT 500
    C) Chrysler... I'll have to get back to you.

    Now we look at the cell phones. Motorola Droid 2 versus Lamborghini Suckphone.

    Well, I think we can agree that, once again, American companies provide FAR more bang for the buck.

    I was thinking the exact same thing, only more "Paris Hilton" and less "Batman".
