TAG Heuer Releases The Worlds Most Unneeded Piece Of Android Technology

Do we have any time piece fanatics here? If you are one, then we’ll assume you have heard of TAG Heuer, a high end Swiss watch maker who’s pieces are quite extraordinary and pricey. TAG is now introducing the Link, which is a smartphone running Android 2.2, has a variety of skins such as alligator hide for an exterior, and even Gorilla Glass.

The phone has a listing of $5,000 US Dollars, and TAG mentions they do plan on updating the OS in the future to hopefully Android 2.3. Let us proceed to wipe the sweat from our brows, because the phone itself, has actually been built like a tank. It is waterproof, air sealed tight, and is completely shock resistant (Samsung take notes). 

TAG has spared absolutely no expense in making this thee phone that all the celebrities want, and have produced an amazing promo video for its release. If anyone was wondering what the boys here at Droid Life want for Christmas this year, it’s not this.

“Android OS is like hot sauce, they put that sh*t on everything!”

    reminds me of a 5000$ brick that is not even the fastest phone out i would rather spend 700$ on getting the samsung s2

    Tag Heuer isn’t exactly “high end.”  Mid-range, sure.

      If you buy Timex at Wal-Mart…..then it’s high end….

    I must voice my appreciation for your generosity giving support to folks that need help with the idea. Your real dedication to getting the message all over turned out to be wonderfully significant and has constantly encouraged employees just like me to achieve their objectives. Your personal warm and friendly information signifies so much a person like me and somewhat more to my colleagues. With thanks; from each one of us.

    Its got 256MB RAM, WTF.  People bitch about Moto and 512MB RAM, but 256MB get a real phone.

    • http://twitter.com/pcriz Perry Meg

       256 isn’t the ram, its internal memory..

  • MZA929

    did anyone notice that that phone has superuser loaded on it?????

    Haha, I love how it has superuser on it

  • DanSke

    It is waterproof, air sealed tight, and is completely shock resistant…Oh and it looks like sh*t. Haha That this is tacky looking. I’m good with my “low end” smartphone. I’ll spend my 5K on more than a label. I hate these designer phones with a passion.

    I am also writing to make you know what a remarkable experience my princess gained checking the blog. She came to find some details, which include what it is like to have an excellent helping character to let folks just understand a number of specialized topics. You actually surpassed our own expectations. Thanks for giving the important, trustworthy, edifying and even cool thoughts on your topic to Lizeth.

    Great promo video….maybe i have the money but sure don’t feel like wasting it right now…any details on hardware though…?

  • http://twitter.com/NovembersDirge The Observer

    Why is the Home icon on the phone inverted?

    • RW-1

      It’s not a home, it’s a mini penis. Look closer.  :)

    • LionStone

      The inverted home icon is TAG’s logo…sick!

  • Devilsephiroth

    5 grand. No auto led flash? Built like a tank but I am sure no phone has ever escaped warranty coverage , not even alligator ones. That super user icon clearly means android os was photoshopped on that commercial.

  • Mothinrust

    In the terms of Norm MacDonald: “What the H?”

    P.S. That phone looks like a gimp.

  • Franzie3

    Tiger Woods has one…

  • Jaccolli

    Love their watches!! Specs suck, but it is sexy. Wonder what kind of warrenty or customer support they offer. I could damn near by a new car for the price.

  • Anonymous

    Tag Heuer should stick with making watches… but I got to admit they do make creative commercials. 

  • Anonymous

    If the phone can cover for me at my job, do my dishes, wash my car and hook me up with a babe every week.. I might actually drop 7G for this.

  • http://www.ericschuetz.com Eric Schuetz

    Gorgeous piece of technology, but wow, $5,000?  That is an awful lot for a cell phone.  Way to much in my opinion.  Also, the skin they used, it looks like they are using LauncherPro!  That Calendar Widget looked a LOT like the calendar widget in the full version LauncherPro.  If that is the case, they probably just did a custom release of the app so that it can have a specialized look.  Even though, that means plenty of customization if they didn’t screw with the settings much.

  • http://twitter.com/c_heuer Christopher Heuer

    The source has the entry price listed as 4700 euro, which is more like $6700.

  • Jak_341

    If you look in the picture above (to the right of the rear camera), is that or is that not the Autobot symbol?

    • http://twitter.com/davidjr621_ David Wagner

      Its the Tag Heuer logo

      • LionStone

        They also used their logo for the home icon, that’s pretty cool how that worked out.

    • http://twitter.com/c_heuer Christopher Heuer

      It’s the Tag Heuer logo.

    • Smr561

      No, that is TAG’s dymbol, look at the crown on the side…speaking of which, why does this phone have a crown?

      • Anonymous

        if the video is accurate, it’s to unlock the cover over the waterproofed cable ports.

    i doubt this phone would have any Rom supports lmao

    Hmmm, not 4G, probably only a 1ghz proc (not listed), and was that a full size SD card slot?

    These are some of the weakest specs I’ve seen.  Congrat TAG Heur.  Even if I was uber rich, I still woudn’t buy this phone.  For that amount of money I bet I could get whatever bleeding edge phone is out, spend a couple grand on some kind of tricked out case, and use it to call in an order to my travel agent to go on a nice cruise.

    That calendar widget looks like it is from launcher pro

  • Kevin Jellison

    You, of course, can have this phone subsidized by Verizon for $199 and an a$$raping 10 year contract @ $20 per MB.

    Blatant iphone ripoff….

  • Kevin Jellison

    I hate it when these bastards throw their own skins on top of Android!!! Blur, Touchwiz, Alligator…

    • http://twitter.com/davidjr621_ David Wagner

      Uhh. Alligator doesnt go on top of android OS, it is literally a skin that is on the phone itself.. not software..

      • That’s the joke

        I love them too this people in here are so picky the new blur from moto
        it is nice with gingerbread and fast and sense for sensation 4g it is
        nice as well. I love them too and the new motoblur will be even nicer

  • Tesseract 3

    LOL and it’s releasing with Froyo. Hahahahahaha. And it will hopefully be updated at some point to 2.3…. LMAO.

    5000 dollars to buy the phone, ridiculous built like a tank construction, alligator hide, beautiful finish and all this other nonsense, and they can’t even release it with Gingerbread. LOL. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=716789798 Lonnie Kerchief

      It’ll get Gingerbread before the DX2 does.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1603800094 Cody Clay

      Also, if i saw correctly, it comes with a 5mp camera, lol. 

      • Tesseract 3

        And apparently it only has 256mb of internal memory, and EDGE speeds, which apparently isn’t even as fast as 3G.

        Why would anyone buy this? Lol.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710530141 Tyler Buchanan

          If you’re gonna bash the phone bash this

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710530141 Tyler Buchanan

        one should never take the opinion of one who automatically assumes an 8 MP camera is better than a 5 MP camera based on pixels alone seriously

        • JoeyBert

          Judging by how personally you’re taking these comments, you bought this phone

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=710530141 Tyler Buchanan

            no, I’m just sick of seeing this argument. _________ phone sucks because it only has a 5 MP camera.  I have two 1920*1080 monitors on my computer right now and that doesn’t even come out to 5 Megapixels, why the hell do I need more than 5 Megapixels on a camera?  When will I ever be blowing something up that big?  Seriously, I’ve stopped commenting much on this site because most of the comments come from people with the intelligence of itools. 

  • )v(urphy

    Mind. Blown.

  • ChrisI

    Leave this crap to the pretentious tools who own iPhones. It never fails for ostentatious consumers to feel the need to whore themselves CONSTANTLY to own name brands solely for the sake of owning the brand name.

      I was actually getting ready to post the same thing.

    • Inkster09

      That icon should be able to be put on every android phone as a choice.

    If I see someone using that phone I will slap them with my droid and pawn the phone..
