Montblanc e-Strap photos shown off

Remember the Montblanc e-Strap we featured earlier this month? The new smart device from the luxury watchmaker has been spotted at the SIHH 2015 (Salon Internationale de la Haute Horlogerie) in Geneva, Switzerland this week. Normally, you will only see traditional watches but since Montblanc is trying to venture into the smartwatch industry, looks like a new trend has started. Montblanc CEO Jerome Lambert was seen wearing the e-Strap while at the show and Alexander Linz of Watch-Insider.com was able to snap up photos of what we can consider a luxury smartwatch.

Hand-on with Lamborghini’s Antares, 88 luxury smartphones

A lot of the exhibitors here at CES 2015 are showing off their latest wares, but some are not exactly the newest but are still perhaps worth flaunting. One of those is Lamborghini, who is putting on display two of its rather exorbitant smartphones, one of which dates back to 2013. The Antares and the 88 Tauri are probably one of the more aggressive luxury phones you'll ever set your eyes on, and that is most likely by design. After all, nothing says luxury sports car than a smartphone that looks like a luxury sports car.

Montblanc brings smartwatch functions to the e-Strap

Smartwatches are still in their early stage but the wearable device industry has a lot of potential. A few manufacturers have jumped into the bandwagon and we can expect that this year, more models will be introduced. We noted recently in a blog roundup that there was an explosion of wearables after Google introduced Android Wear--the wearable OS. Google made smartwatches a hot commodity although companies have yet to standardize the technology. A number of companies and developers are looking into smartwatches, introducing models in different styles, shapes, and functions left and right. But not Montblanc, the luxury brand wants to venture into the mobile industry by bringing fine watchmaking and wearable technology together.

Gold-plated Samsung Note Edge spotted in Vietnam

Seeing a gold-plated mobile device is nothing new but if it's spotted in Vietnam, it can be a bit surprising. The mobile market in Vietnam is not that strong so a special edition is not expected. But then again this isn't the first golden gadget found in the country. Golden Mobile previously released a gold-plated Samsung Galaxy Note 4. This isn't an official limited edition unit from Samsung though but just a grand effort by the company who made it.

Tonino Lamborghini releases high spec luxury phone

The one thing we have noticed about luxury phones is that while they may be impeccably classy in their physical and tangible elements, they usually lack the power in the “under the hood” department, where the specs are simply way below flagship phone levels. Lamborghini – the famed Italian luxury car brand – hopes this will not be the case with the Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri, a high-specced luxury Android smartphone.

Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri DSDA smartphone unveiled

Lamborghini is one of the most exotic of the Italian supercar makers and it has lent its name to products like computers and other devices in the past that have nothing to do with cars. Lamborghini is set to lend its name to another product outside the automotive world and this time is a very interesting smartphone called the Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri.

Gresso Regal R1 titanium Android phone: you can’t afford it

Looking at the specs of the Gresso Regal R1 smartphone and you might be tempted to think “what’s the big deal?” But the whole thing is made out of one solid slab of premium grade 5 titanium – think of the HTC One M8, only that the material is a precious metal in itself and would be more expensive than the internals of the device itself. Sure, if you have USD$3,000 lying around for you to spend – this might be the luxury phone for you.
