Lamborghini introduces Android for the moneyed set

Lamborghini introduces Android for the moneyed set
Late last year, we saw Porsche and RIM get together to offer the Porsche branded BlackBerry P'9981 in the U.K. for the equivalent of $1,998. Now, another luxury car maker is introducing some new mobile devices for the wealthy. Lamborghini is introducing three new luxury handsets and an Android tablet in Russia. Two of the handsets are feature phones while the third is an Android powered smartphone.

The Lamborghini TL688 is also known as the Spyder. Featuring a 2 inch QVGA display, a 3MP camera on back that captures video, and a front-facing camera. The handset is equipped with 4GB of native storage and has GPRS/EDGE connectivity. The device has a hand-made leather body and back and will cost you 60,000 - 70,000 Russian rubles ($1,829 - $2,134 U.S. dollars). The Lamborghini TL 820 Spyder 2 has a 2.4 inch VGA screen, 1GB of internal storage that can be expanded to as much as 16GB, and a 1,200mAh battery. The phone has a 5MP rear facing camera and a VGA shooter in front. Like the first Spyder, the handset is made of gold and leather. The Lamborghini Spyder 2 is priced at 80,000 ruble ($2,438 U.S. dollars)

The Lamborghini TL700 smartphone costs 90,000 RUB, equivalent to $2,750 USD. For that sum you get a device equipped with a 3.7 inch WVGA Sapphire Crystal display, with an unknown Qualcomm processor under the hood. 4GB of native memory is on board and on back is a 5MP camera with a front-facing VGA shooter for self-portraits and video chat. A 1400mAh battery powers the phone. For the price, you might expect at least Android 4.0 to come installed out of the box, but instead Android 2.3 is powering the phone. Where the expense comes in is with the casing for the unit, which is made of gold plating and crocodile skin.

Last, but not least, is the Lamborghini L2800 tablet. The device offers a 9.7″ 1024 x 768 scratch-proof sapphire crystal display, with a 1.2GHz unknown Qualcomm processor under the hood. 512MB RAM and 4GB of native memory are on board and there is both a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing one. While the tablet is not made of Gold, it does have the Lamborghini name on it which of course is worth a pretty penny. While Gingerbread is running the show now, an update to Android 4.0 is expected.

There are no launch dates yet for the devices.
