TAG Heuer Introduces $6,750 Android Smartphone

It’s no secret that some of the staff at The Mac Observer are timepiece fans, more particularly fans of mechanical watches. It’s rare, however, that the horological world intrudes into the Mac, iPhone, iPad universe, however, which is why we were so pleased to cover De Bethune’s iPhone 4 case. Today, we have more crossover news, sort of: Entry-level luxury watch maker TAG Heuer is entering the smartphone market with a € 4,700 (roughly US$6,750) Android-based device.

Better yet, it’s based on Android 2.2, a version of Google’s platform that’s a couple of generations old. Never fear, though, because you can have your Android 2.2 device with a steel, 18-carat rose gold, or titanium finished case, and you can get it accented with rubber; calfskin, alligator, lizard or carbon leather trims.

According to LuxuryWatches, it also features a Gorilla Glass screen on a 3.5” display, and it comes with 256MB of RAM and an 8GB memory card. Oh and it has a button that looks like a traditional watch winder on the side, as you can see in the image below. If you scroll below the image, you’ll find a promotional video posted by TAG to YouTube.
