What have you always wondered about the economy? Tell Us

Lamborghini has a smart phone. $2750.

Marketplace Contributor Jun 12, 2012

Just because you have money, it doesn’t mean you have class. For a long time now, Donald Trump has been the standard bearer for that axiom but now he has at least a little help in the form of an Android phone that has been made, for some reason, by Lamborghini. You know, the expensive car people. The phone costs $2750 and looks like what would happen if the gaudiest casino you could think of somehow barfed a phone. It’s gold plated and, well, just look at it.

There’s also a $2300 tablet, which I’m told doesn’t look as bad. Whew. Both are available only in Russia(!) originally but will soon spread to Europe, like an airborne virus.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
