Tag Heuer’s Link Phone Brings Hefty Price Tag of $6,712

Are you the flashy type? Tag Heuer has just announced their first phone, the Link. I’ll start by saying this phone retails for $6,712. Yes, that’s six thousand, not six hundred. So what could be so special about this phone that it costs nearly seven grand, you ask? Well, lets talk about the “amazing” specs:

  • 3.5” Screen
  • 5 megapixel camera, with auto focus!
  • 256 MB internal memory
  • 8 GB SD card
  • 1400 mAh battery

If you couldn’t tell from my sarcastic remarks, this phone is nothing special. It’s actually the opposite and starts to fall into the “mid-range” Android device category. What’s makes the Link so expensive is what the phone is made out of:

  • Steel
  • 18K rose gold or titanium (buyer’s choice)
  • Leather
  • Alligator skin
  • Lizard skin (yes, lizard skin)
  • And diamond accents to top it all off

Apparently this phone will come rooted when you buy it. Tag Heuer did not mention this but in the promotion video, (as seen below) the phone has an application called Superuser, an application that’s popular among rooted devices.

So, does this phone look cool, or is it just a waste of money? Leave your comments below or on our Facebook Wall. Also, be sure to check out the promo video below.

Tip: Pause the video at 1:18 to see the Superuser application

    Its typical of all the ‘luxury’ phones ive seen in the past. Horrible basic spec, covered in an overly expansive fascia, made to look tacky as hell.

    Its damn ugly, ive seen nicer looking add-ons on eBay. You would only buy that if you had more money than taste, or sense.

      That pretty much sums it up about your taste.

      Have you ever asked yourself why do some Porsche Design watches cost more than an actual Porsche? You can’t compare the luxury market to other markets, you can call someone distasteful if he buys a Tag Heuer phone but IMAO people who buy quad core smart phones are just suckers. They are essentially looking for the same thing as Tag Heuer phone people, the difference is they haven’t got that much money. We are all suckers of marketing. The gadget with the most “power under the hood” is the new PS VITA and it costs about half as much as the top end smart phone. Reason is the target market is different, so you are not really paying for the technology in these gadgets are you? So how much sense does something make when you buy it is really a very hard and complex question these days.

    Leiber recounted that she experienced ordered a shipment of http://www.luxuryun.com evening bags, “known as minaudières” from an Italian company, who   experienced been to gold-plate the brass frames. “After I observed the   very first bag I unpacked was tarnished, I wondered what to hold out   with louis vuitton  shoes for men,”   she said. “It was so unattractive that, for just about any moment, I   believed it experienced been useless. I certainly could not show it to   anyone, so I made the decision to decorate the material bag with   crystals.”        According to Sussman, every minaudières consisted of 13,000 Swarovski   crystals, and took 5 times to louis  vuitton wallet for men.   The very first encrusted clutch retailed for $150, but today, a Judith   Leiber exclusive garners a tremendous variety of bucks from Sotheby’s to   Christies, and just about every auction home in louis  vuitton sarah wallet.   much more compared to instruction course concerning the 30 many years   by which she was the one artist and pattern-maker for her individual   brand, Leiber stretched the conception of what a handbag could be,   developing molds of cats, seashells, hardbound books, mini-Buddha’s,   penguins, as well as the iconic louis  vuitton wristlet bag,   showcased concerning the next period of your time of “Sex as well as   the City.” In 1994, she marketed her company, however her unparalleled   craftsmanship and artistry has cemented her placement amid one of the   most considerable louis  vuitton bloomsbury pm legends concerning the 21st century, and people nowadays hold on to   collect her styles just as if they experienced been masterworks of the   modern modernist.

    you bought this phone, thought it can impress people, and feel better about yourself. Then you see the next guy with an iphone/samsung and an ACTUAL smartphone with an ACTUAL Tage Heuer watch, you realise how wannabe and try hard you are for being so silly. Rich people (mostly) are not stupid, but this is for stupid rich people.Anyone who is carrying this will only not got my admiration but a sarcastic remark.”
