It is probably known to many that the Japanese have some unique and somewhat bizzare ideas on gadgets. With the idea of mashing a teddy bear and mobile phone? Wow, they never fail to amaze me!
A sample of the Kuma phone (bear phone in Japanese) was recently demonstrated in Japan by Willcom. As reported, the crowd just simply adores it. The Kuma phone has most of the functions that you would expect to find in a typical mobile phone – such as speed dials (in the paws), vibrations, custom noises for incoming call, and answering/ending call button (at the tail).
The phone was reported to be priced at $500. I am not sure if it would attract me over with the size of it and at the same range of an iPhone, but I am sure it will definitely attract quite an amount of Japanese girls as it is obviously targeting towards female.
