Official Weibo account suggests that Pepsi is getting ready to launch a phone

A verified account called Pepsi Phone was recently spotted on Weibo, a popular microblogging website from China. The account is listed under IT / Internet / electronic products - mobile phone manufacturers, which obviously suggests that Pepsi is actually getting ready to launch a phone, strange as that may sound.
Pepsi obviously doesn't have the technology or the expertise to design or manufacture its own phones. As such, if there will ever be a Pepsi handset, it will most likely be nothing more than a rebranded product from any one of the numerous Chinese phone manufacturers.
On the flipside, we could be reading too much into this. It's not unthinkable for this Weibo account to have been created for marketing an upcoming Pepsi app or even some sort of contest involving smartphone selfies. We're digging around to find more info, and we'll get back as soon as we learn more.
What do you guys make of this? Could Pepsi actually launch a smartphone?

I guess Apple will soon be selling produce (pun intended or not).

Rumour has it that even before they've built a single handset, they've already outsold HTC.

It'll be nice to see, haha then they'll be one up to coca cola, but humongous breaches when accessing the deep Web (if you don't know what this is please, don't look it up).

Lol everyone should at least once go on the deep web. You haven't been on the internet until you've been on the deep web lol.

“[Phones have] gone from being technological devices to fast-moving consumer products. It’s like Coke and Pepsi now. That’s the war these companies are fighting. It’s not a sexy business anymore.” - Kirk McMaster Things have literally gone Pepsi and Coke.
