Aston Martin Debuts Transparent Mobile Phone - March 30, 2011, 02:05 PM

Phone Sex just took on a whole new meaning for me.





Aston Martin's Sexy New Cell Phone

Just the Facts:

  • In partnership with Mobiado, the Canadian luxury-phone maker, Aston Martin offers a glimpse at a dazzling new high-tech Android mobile phone.
  • The device consists of a transparent touchscreen made from a solid sapphire crystal, with the electronics built into the platinum sides.
  • The phone is designed to integrate with various vehicle functions, from the power door locks to the GPS nav system, and to provide onboard wireless connectivity to a variety of social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and FourSquare.

BASEL, Switzerland — Aston Martin, in partnership with Mobiado, the Canadian luxury-phone maker, is offering a glimpse at a dazzling new high-tech Android mobile phone that would look completely at home on the Starship Enterprise.

Debuting at BaselWorld, the world watch and jewelry show, the new CPT002 Aston Martin Concept Phone is meant to whet consumers' appetites for the new Mobiado/Aston Martin mobile-phone collection that is slated to go on sale in May.

To say the CPT002 concept phone is high-tech doesn't begin to do this communications gadget justice.

The most sensational feature of the phone is a see-through capacitive touchscreen made from a solid sapphire crystal that displays the usual Android icons when in use, but is otherwise virtually transparent when powered down. The phone's electronics, battery and SIM card are built into the platinum sides.

Mobiado envisions a device that will integrate itself with various functions on your Aston Martin, from the power door locks and the safety hardware to the GPS nav system.
The CPT002 also is designed to provide in-vehicle wireless connectivity to a variety of social networking sites, including Facebook, Twitter and FourSquare, automatically updating your social-media accounts with your current location (from the GPS) plus images from the car's onboard cameras.

That's much cooler looking than I expected. I wonder how many thousands of $ will it cost?

It feasable. If you look at the inside of the Iphone, nearly 2/3'rds of the phone is battery.


My guess is that they used even smaller micro components (spy gear level small), which is doable - just not economically sensible if you're trying to hit a mass consumer price point since they cost much more - packaged it all on one side. And the opposite side contains the battery.

Will it have a tremendous talk time - probably not. 3-4 hours maybe unless they also latched on to lower power consumption and better power efficiencies through the use of micro components.

Nonetheless, this phone is equally a fashion statement and as we all know, fashion statements are rarely the most practical items.

The idea is nice....but what's the point? I mean will it give you better screen viewing capability...i.e. higher definition?

If not than it may be cool...but not user effecient.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

The last thing I want to see is my left hand as a backdrop when I'm fapping away to Spankwire mobile.

Its a cool idea. Many years ago when the refrigerator size cell phone came out we said why? Then less then a decade later tiny cell phones came out we said why? Then the huge PDAs came out doing what computers were meant to do and we said why? This will catch on and have some purpose in the future I'm sure...
