    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, 1024×768 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?

    They have also made laptops in the past which were not up to par with the rest of the high end laptops of the time. And cost about 4x as much.

    It's crazy to think how stupid some people can be. And there is an old adage that says 'A fool and his money are soon parted'. I would rather buy an SGS3 or RAZR HD for $800 than spend $2300 on last year's underpowered junk.

    This is just for people with nothing better to do with the millions of dollars they have. Buy a Lambo, and a Lambo Phone oh yeah and a Lambo Tablet.

    If I had nothing going better to do with my money I would buy an SGS3 and send it to someone to customize the case for me. This is an over priced piece of junk.

    Now why didn't I think of that? I could have gotten rich from idiots with more money than brains. Being that stupid makes you wonder how they were able to earn all that money in the first place.

    Yeah but you don't have so much money where you are just looking for a status symbol not something that actually functions, that is basicly what a Lambo is not an everyday driver but something to show you have way to much money!!!

    Ok, if you are going to make some limited edition ultra expensive phone/tablet...at least give it some top of the line specs. I mean really, those specs are basically my DroidX if not worse in some areas. :blink::blink:

    Perhaps its a special android phone.. with a built in flux capacitor in it.. definitely going to need a stronger battery though :D

    Luxury phones always look so stupid. Manufacturers must think rich people are all suckers who will buy anything that's gold plated, diamond encrusted, or wrapped in leather.

    STATUS SYMBOL , that is what it's all about. Nevermind if it works or if it's the best as long as they can use it as a status symbol. Case in point....iPhone.

    Can someone explain to me why they make these things? Who in the heck buys this? It's horrifically under-speced, and just looks terrible. If I was earning for class and elegance, I would buy an iPhone 4s and use it without a case and have it replaced every 3 months when it started to show signs of wear. This thing is just stupid.

    I'm actually surprised it runs Gingerbread. The last one we saw, the Tag Heuer, ran Froyo I think :blink:
