There's a Commodore PET smart phone that emulates old games

WANT TO FEEL, OLD?!?!?!?

I never had a Commodore, 64 or otherwise, on account of all the poverty, but if you wish to relive the halcyon days of youth (or just be trendier than everyone by not having a standard iPhone/Galaxy smart phone), a pair of Italian entrepreneurs wrangled the Commodore trademark and are making a new smart phone.

The Android-based (custom version of Lollipop) Commodore PET runs Commodore 64 and Amiga games via emulators. It's launching first in France, Germany, Italy and Poland for $300 or $365, model depending. I'll buy you one at gamescom if you want (and also you pay me).

It's got a 5.5-inch, 1920×1080 display; 13-megapixel camera (8 in front); and many other stats. I've actually been thinking about replacing my three years old cellphone, but all I really care about is getting the phone with the best camera, not playing games on it. And maybe extricating myself from a cellphone-owning lifetime of AT&T, not that there are particularly better options.
