A look at the new Lamborghini Android smartphone and tablet Tonino Lamborghini, founded by the son of the famous automaker, has announced its latest line of "luxury" mobile devices aimed at the Russian market.
The company unveiled three phones and one tablet, although only one of the phones runs on Android.

Dubbed the Lamborghini TL700, the phone runs on Android 2.3, has a 3.7-inch WVGA sapphire crystal display, a 5 MP rear camera, a VGA front-facing camera, 4 GB of internal memory and a small 1,400 mAh battery. It is unclear what processor is in the device, but it said to be from Qualcomm.

While the specs are terrible by current standards, the device comes with a 90,000 RUB/$2,750 price tag. Why? The phone has a case made of gold and a back plate of crocodile skin.

The tablet, the Lamborghini L2800 has a 9.7-inch 1024 768 pixels sapphire crystal display, a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage capacity, a MicroSD card support and a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor. Just like the phone, the tablet runs on Android 2.3.

Lamborghini has priced the L2800 at 75,000 RUB/$2,290 although it does not have a gold case or croc skin.

Wow... Android 2.3... Too bad the phone/tablet doesn't run as fast as their production vehicles. For the premium price you should get equally premium performance. I mean that IS what you're paying for; or am I missing something again?

Would it kill them to increase performance? those specs are awful. Seems like it wouldn't be that much of an extra burden considering whoever is buying the phone is buying pure gold and croc skin.

Exactly! It would seem to me that the only reason those damned things would go up in value would be the market in precious metals. Talk about a style of "bait & switch".

It's almost unforgivable the specs that are in these devices. They could have sacrificed $100 margin or added $100 to the price and made them Android 4.0, quad-core, LTE, etc. If someone is going to pay $3000, they will pay $3100....
