This Aston Martin Android Isn’t Up to 007′s Specifications

Bond might be saddled with a Sony, thanks to Sony Pictures producing 007′s recent outings, but he should be glad he's not stuck with this polished turd-of-a-phone. Meet the Aston Martin Aspire, an Android phone that no one should ever buy for $1,300 - it's no Vertu that's for sure.

It comes in five colours, black, white, silver, gold and rose gold - because you know your blinged-out phone has to match your gaudy gold-covered fingers. The base model will burn a $1,300-shaped hole in your pocket, while the last two variants get pushed up to $1,600, thanks to 24K gold in-lays on the case. Classy.

Specs-wise, it's a bit of a joke, but then, what did you expect? It comes with a 3.2-inch HVGA screen, and packs a colossal 800MHz single-core chip backed by a whole 256MB of RAM, 512MB of storage, and a microSD card slot. It's also got a 5MP shooter on the rear and a VGA front-facing chat cam on the front. 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS are there too, along with, yes, you guessed it, Gingerbread - cutting edge technology from Aston here.

You do get a leather pouch, and not one, but two 1,500mAh batteries in the box, but for $1,300 I can't help but think you'd be better off buying two Samsung Galaxy S IIIs. Or, err, anything else? [Eprice via Unwired View]
