Toshiba's Bizarre Softbank 815T PB RoboPhone

Posted 27 Feb 2008 at 14:17 UTC by steve Share This

Toshiba has created what must be the strangest mobile phone to date. It comes with a set of articulated legs and arms that turn it into a Transformer-like toy robot. The phone's display turns into the robot's face with eyes and mouth. It was made for a Japanese TV show called "Ketai Sousakan 7" but doubles as a toy for the kids. I think that TV show title translates as "Mobile Phone Investigator 7". The phone itself, as if you cared, is a 3G device with a 3.2 MP autofocus camera and QVGA screen. An Akihabar article includes 45 photos of the phone in various poses, on TV, and with cute Japanese girls. See Softbank's press release (Japanese) for more details on the phone.
