$1300 Aston Martin Android phone is as tacky as it is underpowered
Aston Martin has made some cross-promotional handsets with relative success, but the latest edition Aston Martin Aspire Android handset is not one of those. Granted, the $1300 price tag is somewhat justified by the fact that you can match it with your sports coupe, but under the hood is no James Bond engine, that's for sure.
Powered by a single-core 800MHz processor, with 256MB of RAM, and a paultry 3.2" HVGA screen, the Aston Martin Racing-branded phone would probably cause a chuckle or two in established Android phone makers HQs, where the flagships now are being outed with monster HD screens and quad-core chipsets.
The price is quite high, but, hey, it comes in black, white, silver, gold and rose gold, with the last two upping the ante to $1600, because of the 24K gilded cage this predator of a phone is in then. Plus, you get a leather pouch, headphones, not one, but two 1, 500mAh batteries, and an Aston Martin Racing-branded microUSB cable. Joy.
