This device, which can transform from a odd soap-shaped bar phone into a heart, is equipped with a 128×36 dot matrix display, can store up to 100 contact entries, and has support for hands-free functions. Other than that, its has no modern phone features — no internet connectivity, no camera, not even a function for SMS. It’s basically a call-only phone under Japan’s low-cost Personal Handyphone System (PHS) network.

If you want more of the fancy phone, a Sailor Moon variant is also available with gold embellishments and a wand accessory for an additional JPY 4,298 (*Php1,630).

    The term “kawaii” or “cute” must have been embedded within the Japanese culture, to come up with cute stuff such as this. It does not surprise, however.

      To rephrase my earlier statement, I meant that the concept of the term “kawaii” or “cuteness” must have been embedded within the Japanese culture to come up with cute stuffs such as these.
