Earlier this month I was showing you the new docomo Style cell phone series launched at NTT Docomo in Japan. One of those superb phones stood out with a chocolate-like design. Today I want to dedicate this article to this unique handset created by Q-Pot, and tell you all about it.
NTT Docomo SH-04b is a stylish, fashionable and unique flip phone developed by Sharp and designed by Q-Pot to look like chocolate. It measures 109 x 50 x 16.3 mm at 131 grams and has an internal 3-inch ASV LCD display of 480 x 854 pixels (a new display technology developed by Sharp) and 16 million colors, while the secondary display is a mono Organic Electroluminescent LCD type of 0.8 inches and 39 x 96 pixels, which reveals the time right on the melted chocolate.
The handset comes in Melty Bitter and Melty Strawberry designs, featuring built-in 8MP CCD camera with autofocus, face detection and video recording, a secondary CMOS camera of 430,000 pixels, support for up to 16GB of external memory on a microSD card, voice mail, Deco-mail with photos and animations, GPS, support for video transfers from Blu-ray Disk recorders, digital TV, mobile wallet, 3G, the i-mode browser, HSDPA 7.1 Mbps Internet transfer speeds, and up to 220 hours of continuous time, or 570 hours of standby. More than these, the phone is water-resistant.
All the other little things surrounding the handsets in the photos are accessories created by Q-Pot, all sweets-themed. You can read about the biscuit headphones here.
Update: NTT Docomo will offer the chocolate phone starting December 9 for a price of 73,038 Yen, or $827. It can be purchased with a 12- or 24-month contract, for $114. The handset was released as a limited edition available in 13,000 units.
