Eat me: DoCoMo to sell chocolate phone on Valentine’s
Does your phone look good enough to eat? NTT DoCoMo wants to make you crave your handset even more by dressing it up like a chocolate bar.
Launching on Valentine’s Day next February, the Q-pot Phone SH04D will look like a slab of milk chocolate heaven.
The bar will be bite-sized at only 2.3 inches wide and will run Android 2.3. The back of the phone is designed to resemble melting chocolate.
The telecom treat will come with a wireless Chocobed recharging unit that looks like–well, a box of chocolates.
It’s the result of a DoCoMo collaboration with Gramme, which owns the candy-oriented Q-pot brand and provided special wallpaper designs for the new phone.
Only 30,000 SH04D phones will be made, DoCoMo said. They will cost between 40,000 yen ($523) and 49,999 yen with a two-year contract, according to the Japanese daily Asahi Shimbun.
