astonmartin-android

Have you ever wondered what an extremely high-end and rather revolutionary Android device would look like? Well, pretty much everything you could dream it to be was done by Mobiado when they constructed the CPT002 in conjunction with Aston Martin. The device, while still only a concept, has a sapphire crystal capacitive touchscreen that sits between two platinum bars. These platinum bars hold the processor, battery, SIM card slot and all the other goodies. The device will also act as a proximity fob, and will allow you to lock and unlock your car when you are close to the vehicle with the device. Pretty interesting to see what can be done when the limit is the sky, and people get creative. [Mobiado via AutoBlog]

That is pretty cool.

must be nice to be able to spend thousands of dollars for a phone...which is probably how much itll be..

Darkshneider says:

Im pretty sure if you want to use the phone to its fullest, youd have to have an Aston Martin. If you do have one, then you wouldnt be complaining about a phone a couple of thousand $. Kind of like those ugly gold phones that came out a while back

BatmanX says:

The phone Bruce Wayne would have.

NxTech3 says:

I think thats the phone Tony Stark had like 8 years ago

Bruce Wayne is cooler than Tony Stark.

Lancer033 says:

I hate to dive into a nerd debate, but Tony Stark is way cooler than Bruce Wayne. Bruce just has a crap ton of daddy's money to go with his psychological issues.

Wyatt says:

Nope, they both are sitting on dad's money. The real difference is that Tony would have created the phone.

didimac says:

Tony would create the phone and get tired of it after two weeks...

Quis89 says:

Cool concept....ugly phone.

goblueboy says:

now just run stock android and an unlock able bootloader and this thing will turn into a roaring wildfire of greatness

nttdemented says:

A wha whatt? Here, take these $1,000 nerd and bring it back when you're done. Take my car to. Tell you what... Wash it for me while you're add it and I'll give you another $100.

K bay!

Darkshneider says:

Awesome, keyless entry for my Rapide... pfft LOL, who am I kidding?!

ro1224 says:

One word. Hideous.

drethos says:

Nice phone but how is it to live with? Does it wake you up every morning and tickle you bum? But mostly how fast is it to use? To find out we need to hand it off to our tame cellphone user. Some say his face will sometimes crash to blue screen and that every time he hears the rustling of a sun chip bag he is mildly aroused. He's not the stig but his tech savy son!
IMO its to much into its self like most Aston martins. I don't think car designer's should design phones.

Luce says:

Well done. Any Top Gear reference is a good reference.

nbell978 says:

Agreed.

What?!?! No front facing camera?!?!? NEXT!!!! Lol ; -)

Could never afford it unless Android central will be giving one away and if so I'm in!

The contract for final manufacture went to Samsung, and it'll ship with Android 1.5.

The Sapphire crystal screen is the only cool "feature" this has going for it, since it would be nearly impossible to scratch, I long for the day when synthetic sapphire (or even better synthetic diamond) screens can be made.

robaldred says:

Agree. No way Aston martin would make something so damn ugly. Android icons look wrong aswell.

Android Goat says:

All the money in the world can't buy taste or style...

RoccOn16v says:

Ooooohhhhhh! High end phones are supposed to look horrible!

drethos says:

yes just like most high end cars, you may find a few nice to look at ones but their looks are as far as it goes. Your paying more for less, they horrible to use, and people will look at you and it with with disgust. To be honest you'll get better comments owning a dumb phone rather then a over price smart like phone.

Simer03 says:

well......im rich, so im most likely going to buy this! CHING CHING!

..........................NOT! :(

rizzay1 says:

That would be cool if the glass was flexible plastic so u can close the bars together

dchawk81 says:

What poor design.

dacp283 says:

I've officially lost all hope for all of you black slab loving people lol

dchawk81 says:

I just like a sleek phone that doesn't call attention to itself.

Bla1ze says:

If that is what high-end looks like, I'll stick to lower-class.

i like these site. i was looking for someting like these
interesting job keep on the good job
Try pariuri sportive

Smitty_82 says:

That thing had better have a quad-core!

MBeattie says:

If this or say the ThunderBolt were sitting next to each other, with no mention of monetary value, I'm pretty certain everyone would choose the TBolt. These concepts are always so hideous. Forget sapphire crystal, give us gorilla glass and were happy campers.

showson1 says:

Wow, I know it's a concept pic.. but that thing's pretty fugly..

Wyatt says:

Must have horrid battery life compared to other phones but I guess that's the price of high-tech.

Finsol says:

For those of you that don't know, that "concept" is actually a Creative travel sound for the ipod nano 3rd gen. I know because I have one.
