News from the East: Chocolate phones from Sharp

LG Chocolate, LG schmocolate. The Korean manufacturer might have a Christmas-themed version of its high-spec New Chocolate BL40, but these phones from Japanese company Sharp actually look like bars of melting chocolate – and they come in Melty Bitter (brown) and Melty Strawberry (pink).

 

Akihabara News has pics of these very tasty looking clamshell phones, which are a collaboration between Sharp and Tokyo-based accessory brand Q-Pot. The phones are packing some heat too, at least for devices made to look like melting confectionary: eight-meg camera, three-inch WVGA screen, a digital TV tuner, and to top it off, they're apparently waterproof.

 

Onto the chocolate: The phones are also preloaded with chocolate themed wallpaper and menus, and cutesy phone chains with (plastic) macaroon and choc box charms. They're out now on Japanese network NTT Docomo.
