Ah-ha, no, this one’s not a stupid phone concept! It’s actually real, according to Engadget Mobile! The phone in question is the Asus ZX1 Lamborghini phone. Yup, that’s the same people who make the Eee PC (say that first word in a Yorkshire accent, and really draw it out, for best effect).
Running on Windows Mobile 6.1, the core operating system is going to be tweaked by Asus to be… well, all spinny and pretty and nice, or as they say, “it’s just like the iPhone!”
It’s very clear from the badge that it’s a Lamborghini mobile phone, but there are other little touches in the design. The shape of the nav-key, for example, being the same as a Lambo badge, and I reckon the Call & End keys look like the headlights on a Gallardo. So, in essence, it’s all shiny, and nice, and the name Lamborghini is easily more exclusive than Nokia (ask yourself this… can you afford a Nokia? Yes? Good. Can you afford a Lambo……?)
I’m not entirely sure how well it conveys the feeling of “Lamborghini-ness”, since they’re based the holy trinity on gut-wrenching power, outrageous looks and being utterly, utterly mental. It just feels a bit too… nice, to be a Lambo.
Still, looks the business, and if it flies, could be a damn good phone, this.
But the big question is: how will it fair against OUR concept version of a Lamborghini phone, shown on this story?
