India gets Asus Lamborghini ZX1 smartphone
The Asus-Lamborghini ZX1 smartphone, first launched back in March of 2008, is now making its way to the Indian market with the same touchscreen and carbon fiber goodness of the original. Of course this Indian version will also have a high grade stainless steel casing to protect the camera mechanism.
Revisiting its spec sheets, you’ll find that the Asus-Lambo ZX1 actually has some pretty nice features. And these include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v2.0+EDR, USB connectivity, 3.5G and even a built-in GPS. It also has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, which is used to control its unique racer-style UI along with a 9-way navigational key.
The Asus-Lamborghini ZX1 is also a Quad-band GSM handset running on Windows Mobile 6.1 OS with ASUS Touch UI. It also has expandable memory via a MicroSD memory card slot so users should never run out of multimedia storage space (at least theoretically).
It’s really a great phone, and probably the only thing that’s keeping it from being a major hit is its price. The Asus Lamborghini ZX1 smartphone was first expected to have a price of at least 1000 Euro, and in India it will retail for Rs. 50,000. That’s slightly more than $1,200 USD. So good luck with that, Asus.
