Tonino Lamborghini is launching a series of luxury phones in Russia this coming August “which includes two gold-plated feature phones, a tablet, and an Android smartphone”. Pictured here is the Android smartphone. Ugly even as a gauche status symbol. Add to that anemic specs and very, very outdated Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). Never mind it costs almost USD3,000.

Makes the Nokia ORO an exercise in taste and restraint.

For only €800, you, too, can put a fine piece of gauche consumerism into your pocket! Features: a sapphire crystal home button and 18-carat gold trimmings backed by Scottish leather from the “finest Caledonian herds”! Oh, it also has some trifling nonsense like 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen and an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD recording.

Introducing the Nokia ORO. Oro being Italian for gold in case you have the observation power of a mollusc and fail to see the sheer blingyness.

While the technical specs aren’t poor by any means, it is “powered” by Symbian. Which was a fine mobile OS in its day back in the mid 00s. So, something for the more money than sense crowd.
