Would you pay €4700 (£4222) for a smartphone running Android 2.2 Froyo?

Posh watchmaker Tag Heuer hopes you will - it's working on just such a beast. There's a teaser on Tag Heuer's own website, but watch blog A Blog To Read has been mailed some snaps of the gadget and the specs.

Tag has gone OTT with the rubber-backed design, attempting to make its phone actually look like a watch - as opposed to a phone that look like a watch.

So it's all shiny stainless steel - and there's even a winder-style button on the side.

The display is a 3.5in, 480 x 800 touchscreen. There's 3G connectivity and Wi-Fi. It has a 5Mp camera on the back.

In short, there's nothing special in the spec - it's the looks that count here. The casing materials too: in addition to steel, you'll be able to get it in gold or titanium, with calfskin, alligator, carbon or lizard leather on the back.

The Link goes on sale next month. ®
