For those who appreciate luxury taken to an extreme and rather the shape and materials than the gadget’s functions, Tonini Lamborghini (the son of the auto manufacturer) launched a series of luxury “toys” for the Russian market.
We are talking about three mobile phones and a tablet, gadgets that will impress users not with the facilities under the hood, but the case itself, built of precious metals and diamonds in places. There are two phones, TL688 and TL820, quite similar, which come equipped with display of 2 and 2.4-inch, 3 and 5 megapixel camera and, last but not least, with 4GB and 1GB internal memory (extensible). The main and almost only assets of the two devices are the handcrafted details and gold and leather case.
TL700 is the third phone, this time a smartphone running Android Gingerbread on a Qualcomm platform, with a 3.7-inch display, a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and a 5 megapixel camera. It boasts a noble casing completed with diamonds and crocodile leather items.
Lamborghini L2800 Tablet comes equipped with a Qualcomm processor at 1.2 GHz, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory and a display of 9.7 inches and a resolution of 1024 x 768.
If you’re wondering how much you should pull out of pocket for these “digital toys”, you should know that prices vary from U.S. $ 1800 for the phones to $ 2700 and $ 2300 for the smartphone and tablet. All four devices will be available starting with August in Russia and remains to be seen to what extent will be appreciated by the tycoons there.
