I know that as a general rule of thumb, you get what you paid for, but there are moments when some of the more expensive things in life are not necessarily the most practical. Case in point, this particular smartphone from Aston Martin that runs on the Android operating system.

The kind of money you pay for buys you just the brand name and the phone certainly does not live up to its name in terms of speed, considering how you will have to fork out anywhere from $1290 up to $1590 ( depending on color options) only to end up with a processor that plods along at 800MHz on a single core. Yes sir, it does feel as though it is 2010 all over again, doesn’t it?

Other paltry specifications include 256MB RAM, a 5-megapixel camera at the back, a 3.2-inch HVGA screen and one of the older builds of Android 2.3 Gingerbread – we are talking about a version that even predates Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Don’t you think that this is a rather sad excuse for a phone in this day and age? Seems to me as though it hurts Aston Martin’s brand more than promote it.
