my dad and my girlfriends dad both have vantages and a friend of mine has a db7, so speaking from a point of view of having a fair idea on what sort of person buys an aston, i can safely say none of them would buy this - having the aston key is SO much more of a statement than having what is basically a shocking phone with a transfer on the front - you could probably buy a sticker of the internet for a couple of pounds if you really felt like looking like a bit of a moron

Who ever buys this is shallow. The 8800 alone is a poor phone, terrible battery, heavy, limited features, expensive just for a chrome cover. The extra feature of a Aston Martin badge is very very sad. You will probably get someone out there with very limited personality who will want this phone to go with there car..... or someone who cannot afford an Aston Martin. Anyone out there fancy sticking a spoon to there phone? 8800 anyone?

Why dont Aston Martin Bring out a car with a Skoda interior? Because people wouldnt buy it. After all, thats what Nokia have done with the 8800. Putting a fancy badge on it doesnt make it any better, still the most over-rated piece of cutlery ever! Why are people who buy mobile phones so blinkered?

well to be honest i think for nokia this will be a great idea if the owners and that have aston martins, for me this is not the greatest fone love the cars but hate the 8800 so add a logo and bump the price through the roof ain't gonna make it the one to have. So i still don't rate this handset

The best looking car company teams up with one of the nicest phone companies. I dont think the mix gets any better. As for the audience, theres plenty of ppl hu'd kill for an aston martin *that includes me* don't u worry, these babies will b snatched up really quickly!

i have to agree with everyone. heres my idea, buy the cheaper one...take it to an engraver (cuz im pretty sure it wont b that expensive) engrave the aston martin logo on it, upload some aston martin theme stuff. and voila u've got the fone, and u've just saved 400 dollars!! thnk u for doin business with me ;)

Whoops. sry for the triple post, blame it on the Firefox.

Who is this phone supposed to reach? Theres like probably 1000-10 000 Aston Martini owners. I really wouldn't call that a market to promote a phone. And the "wish I had a aston DB9" fans really are not gonna pay extra 400 for the emblem. I think this is just stupid, and I really ain't bitter at all for those ppl how this phone is supposed to.

And since the Aston Martin logo is now engraved on the phone it will cost 400 dollars extra.
