TAG Heuer LINK is the luxury Android smartphone for the ones who can afford it

TAG Heuer LINK is the luxury Android smartphone for the ones who can afford it
We suppose you would agree that when it comes to luxury mobile phones, functionality isn't the thing that justifies their outrageous price tags. Of course, you do get premium materials fused together with superior craftsmanship, but at the end of the day, such a device is only good for answering calls and for making its owner look snobbier.

That is why the TAG Heuer LINK deserves some attention. The premium smartphone has all the necessary ingredients to be called a luxury device and a modern smartphone at the same time. First off, it runs Android 2.2 Froyo, which means that its lucky owner will have the platform's broad catalog of apps to explore while chilling out in the back yard of their mansion. Besides that, the device comes with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera and HSUPA, so those who have it will be able to easily upload photos of their collection of thoroughbreds online for the world to see.

Even though luxury smartphones are not necessarily the toughest ones out there, the TAG Heuer LINK has been built to last. Its 3.5-inch WVGA display is protected by Gorilla Glass while its air-sealed body is said to be water-tight and shock-resistant. As far as its looks go, the TAG Heuer LINK can be crafted to order out of premium materials such as stainless steel, gold, or titanium, with calfskin leather, carbon leather, alligator or lizzard skin accents. Diamonds are also on the list, if you insist.

The TAG Heuer LINK is expected to become available in July at a base price of around $6,700. No, we wouldn't drop that amount of cash on a smartphone either, but at least watching its promotional video doesn't cost anything. Feel free to check it out below.

If someone.is dropping almost 7000 on this its not because they want the latest os. Its a statement. So froyo is good enough. Worse case scenario someone says "oh yeah well mine has gingerbread!" in which the reply will be "I have diamonds and titanium with leather made from baby cows"

u geeks make laught thinking that having the most powerful cell phones makes god knows what... well most people dont care... people that have the money will buy a luxury truck rather than a hybrid that will give them more gallons per mile... I drive a truck and is not fuel efficient but is a chick magnet... and that works for me.. i can afford to drive a truck...
