I may not have the money to buy this but even if I do what's the point? I don't think showing off is widely accepted in modern society.

If you are going to fork out a ton of dough for a phone, please, at least let it have some decent performance! QVGA screen??? what a joke! It's like buying a car with the chassis of a ferrari, but the engine of a Daihatsu!!! (if those cars even exist anymore!!)

These phones are pointless what is the point in forking out thousands of pounds on a phone that doesnt run a good O.S. and will have barley any functionality technically id rather pay £400 for a galaxy s or an iphone 4 as they can at least do more than send a text and make a phone call who cares if your phone has a ferrari logo or a 3 cart diamond on.

Is this made to partner the Ferrari that keeps bursting into flames? If so, it's a rather inspired choice because when your Ferrari explodes and they take a pile of ashes away to the forensics lab, they'll be able to identify you by your phone, which, being made from titanium will presumably be untouched.

Stop publish stupid news like this.
Where is the news about ALTEK LEO 3.5G ??
Aigo A8 has been presented at CES Las Vegas for chinese market, and then for Europe. It's a great Android smartphone with 14 mpx camera and 3X optical zoom.
Why Gsmarena don't display any information about this ??

such beautiness mustn't be crashed with a horrible camera and led hole on the back. the customers of this piece of art dondon't need high tech. they want form,materials and exclusivity. in my opinion it's a mistake to put cameras on this perfect mobile. and in general,nokia is wrong because they didn't business mobiles in e-series without any camera. for example they must make an e7 without useless cheap camera with no autofocus wich is now on it
