Only in Japan: a chocolate phone for Valentine's day

Only in Japan: a chocolate phone for Valentine's day
Everything is possible in Japan, and when time comes around Valentine’s day, everything is pushed further - this time it’s the limited edition chocolate-themed Q-Pot.Phone SH-04D arriving on NTT DoCoMo. A little special something you might or rather might not want to get for your significant other.

The phone is made in cooperation with Sharp and Q-Pot, known for giving a chocolate taste and feel to everything that falls in sight from jewelry to bags.

This time, with the handset it has added a "three-dimensional melting chocolate block" on the back, and a special skin on top of Gingerbread giving the illusion of chocolate slowly oozing on the screen. Otherwise, it’s not too degrading hardware-wise: you get a 3.7-inch qHD display, an 8-megapixel camera and a relatively thin, 12.3mm profile.

The chocolate phone is gearing up for launch on Valentine's Day, in a run of 50,000 units. Ladies (and probably some very, very bold guys), your say: yay or nay?

Question is, how many of these phones will you find with no bite marks on them?

The SH-04B looked a lot better then this brick. It's sad that japan is starting to phase out clamshells.
