January 31st, 2012
The Japanese do come up with some strange technology. The Chocolate Q-Pot Phone, which was designed by Tadaaki Wakamatsu and NTT DoCoMo, is going to be released in Japan as a special Valentine’s Day smartphone. Does that mean you’ll only use it on that particular day? Nope, the Q-Pot Phone is designed help you get your chocolate fix whenever you answer your phone.
It’s official name is the SH-04D and it’s part of the DoCoMo ‘With’ series of collaborative phone designs. It runs a custom Android 2.3 interface, pre-loaded with a chocolate-themed game and wallpapers. It even comes with a “Chocobed” recharging station, that’s been designed to look like a chocolate box. How cute.
The actual phone is produced by Sharp and only 30,000 units will be made. This phone will sell for ¥40,000 (~$521 USD). Now that’s expensive chocolate!
