A phone good enough to eat

Whispering sweet nothings just got a whole lot easier, but those with a sweet tooth might do best to avoid the Q-Pot phone, which is more than likely to cause users extreme chocaholic cravings every time they pull it out.

Only available in Japan, it is to be released as a special Valentine's Day edition smartphone, in a colour scheme called 'Bitter Choco'. The device even comes complete with a recharging station designed to resemble a chocolate box. Only 30,000 of the models will be produced by Sharp, running Android 2.3.
