    Luxury watch makers seem to have a thing for making particularly gaudy Android handsets. Take Ulysse Nardin, makers of the Chairman handset. They priced it at $50,000. The Tag Heuer Link on the other hand, seems like a bargain comparatively. For €4,700 (about $6,700), you get an Android 2.2 smartphone with a 3.5-inch display, 5MP camera, and 256MB of internal storage. Also included is an 8GB microSD card and 1400mAh battery. What you’re really paying for is the clunky case made of a selection of materials including steel, 18K rose gold, titanium, leather, alligator skin, and rubber. Did we mention alligator skin? And diamond accents? Dress it up however you want, but this thing still doesn’t stack up internally to handsets priced at one tenth of the Link’s value. At least it looks kind of cool in the below promo video…

    For that price you would think they would throw in a 16 gig or 32 gig card.

    Like the watches they make, these are fashion statements long on style and short on function.

    nor do they seem to care about specs.

    for that price, you'd think they could at least make a competitive device. I think this would go over better if it was, say, Bionic, GS2 or EVO3d or something with leather attached. For that price I don't think it would cannabalize the market of the original device.
