Lamborghini reveals luxury Android smartphone, tablet

    Lamborghini Android

    I said it a couple of months back when reporting on the TAG Heuer Racer Android smartphone, and I will say it again here: I don’t think highly of luxury smartphone manufacturers, but I think a lot less of those who actually go out and purchase such a device. That being said, Lamborghini has just announced an Android smartphone as well as an Android tablet.

    Lamborghini-TL700-Luxury-Android

    The luxury Android smartphone produced by the makers of the Murciellago is called the Lamborghini TL700 and has specs that no Android fan will lust for, although the justification for its huge $2,750 price comes in the form of the expensive materials used for its case, such as crocodile skin and gold. Here is the spec list:

    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
    • 3.7 inch WVGA sapphire crystal display
    • A Qualcomm processor (Lambo weren’t kind enough to share the frequency or architecture)
    • Unknown amount of RAM
    • 5 MP primary camera, 2 MP secondary camera
    • 4GB internal memory
    • 1,400 mAh battery

    Lamborghini-L2800-Luxury-Android-tablet

    I won’t waste any more of your time and crush all your hopes that the Lamborghini Android tablet will be better equipped than the smartphone. If we’re to judge on a performance level (and since we’re an Android website, we obviously do), the Lamborghini L2800 tablet is also way below the mid-range level, but at least the Italian sports car manufacturer they were willing to share a little more about the actual specs:

    • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (awful, right?)
    • 9.7 inch sapphire crystal display running at a 1024 by 768 pixels
    • 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor (no word about its internal architecture, although I’m betting on single core A8)
    • 512 MB of RAM
    • 5 MP primary camera, 2 MP secondary camera
    • Support for MicroSD cards
    • The L2800 will be priced slightly lower than the Lambo Android smartphone, at around $2,300.

      Clarification on this story: Tonino Lamborghini is a separate company from the sports car manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini. They share the same name because “Tonino Lamborghini” was founded by Ferrucio Lamborghini’s son.  We apologize for any confusion this may have caused our readers. 

    Are there any Android fans amongst our readers that would be interested in buying the Lamborghini TL700 or the L2800? If so, I’d advise towards getting an Asus Transformer Prime and donating the remaining sum for charity: you’ll be way better off!

        After listening to all this I would suspect that the phone comes along with the car. But u r right. It should perform like the LAMBO.

    • Jpilgram2010

      only thing the phone has going for me is the case design, looks almost alien, kinda cool

      but seriously? luxury =/= gingerbread

      Oh god, that phone looks like something C-3PO would shit out when he has a bad case of diarrhea.

      I don’t get it. If its luxury its suppose to be a better device as well, not just looks. These specs are horrible. A tablet running gingerbread, really!? Its not like there trying to cram all this into a really thin device. You suck lambo. I was going to buy a Lamborghini on my lunch break today…. You can just forget it now!

      They can’t be serious with this.

      Even I can manufacture that piece of junk.

      if(luxury.equalsIgnoreCase(“Android 2.3 Gingerbread”)) {
      System.out.println(“KEEP IT. I ain’t interested”);
      }

    • Jaysann22

      That’s a phone!? That’s one ugly phone….

    • e2Tech

      If ever a phone has been designed for tasteless wealthy idiots this is it

      I would definitely buy this phone once it is released, only if it has Quad-Core though and is priced decently.

      Probably for those that can’t afford a Lamborghini but this is the closest it gets to one…

    • balthuszar

      do you feel the same about people who manufacture luxury automobiles and the people who buy them? why begrudge people on the way they spend their money?(even if i could afford this, i woudnt buy it…but who am i to judge people who can afford to buy this and do?)

      • JohnMiller2013

        As a moral agent, you should judge other people’s behavior. If someone is demonstrating vicious character traits, you would be doing humanity a favor by recognizing this and making your judgments public.

        • Mark Mann

          And they had what to do with it? Buying an over priced piece or tech is not a ‘vicious character trait’

    • Davo456

      Tonino Lamborghini has nothing to do with the car company – check your facts before you publish!

      • Luke Knudsen

        Actually it does. Tonito lamborghini is the car company’s luxury goods department. They make things like lighters, watches, and clothing. Check your facts.

    • whatsbeefy

      Thats phone looks like a piece of shit

    • brutalpanther

      What a waste.Purely just a status symbol device,I can buy below $100 devices with better specs.Its gold wow,like thats going to make it work better.Couldnt they afford at least a snapdragon 600.No thanks i’ll stick with my LG G2,SAMSUNG 10.1 2014 EDITION TABLET and LG GPAD 8.And i got all three for less than 1/4 of the price.

      • JohnMiller2013

        Yeah, but it’s not a waste for the manufacturer. There’s a strong market for status symbols. I think “status anxiety”, the fear of looking lower-class than those close to us, is strong in most of our lives.

        • Grman Rodriguez

          But with those hideous looks the only people that will be attracted will be robbers and thiefs

      i just stopped reading on the GINGERBREAD part

    • Republican Bob
