I don't really follow technology much, and I'm probably one of the lone 1% of the advanced technology population that still isn't on Twitter.
But I couldn't resist this phone when I first got wind of it. Made to look like a melting bar of chocolate with Q-Pot's signature logo, the menu has a chocolate-themed default wallpaper and reportedly, it'll also be packaged like a chocolate box. There are even straps that look like complimentary sweets
Not only does the phone have a fancy design, its also equipped with a 3" screen, 8-megapixel camera, a TV tuner (a big feature in Japan) and Bluetooth support.
The phone will come in pink "melty strawberry"and brown "melty bitter" versions, supposedly for him and her. No official prices have been released but considering that only 13,000 of them will be made, this gives them limited edition status. So I expect alot of Japanese will probably go nuts over them, especially considering Q-Pot is like the creme de la creme of sweet motifs brands.

Too bad I'll never be able to get my own hands on them, guess I'm still saddled with my LG Ice Cream phone....
