Speculation, being what it is, forces us to take both possible sides of a story in to account. Such as this latest rumor regarding the Lamborghini-branded Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone from ASUS. The ASUS ZX1 Lamborghini has been gussied up and shown off for the lux-handset demographic to drool over for the past several months, and we’ve been waiting on ASUS to finally launch the handset this summer. But, that may no longer be the case.
We hearing that ASUS has put the kibosh on the ASUS ZX1 Lamborghini’s 2008 summer launch plans. ASUS apparently wanted to ensure that their more important product launches stayed on-schedule for a Q4 2008 launch window.
Now, as far as the other side of the story is concerned, we could just be seeing the ASUS ZX1 getting delayed until 2009. Like the rumor says, ASUS is putting a priority on their other Q4-targeted handsets – which could mean the ZX1 is getting bumped back, not entirely killed off.
With Lamborghini styling and a slick UI under the Windows Mobile 6.1-powered hood, the ASUS ZX1 Lamborghini is definitely a smartphone worthy of seeing the light of day. For what it’s worth, we hope to see this device someday.
