Softbank’s Gundam Cellphone Has All the Newtypes Drooling

Gundam Cellphone

Why is it that Japan gets all the cool phones? I’m serious. Sure we all have our Blackberries and our iPhones, but none of those come with model Gundams, or high resolution cameras. Well, Softbank’s upcoming Gundam Cellphone 945SH G certainly does. In addition to being a Sharp 945SH with a built in OLED display,  and 12.1 mega pixel anti-shake autofocus camera — yes, their phones have better cameras than ours — the limited edition phone will be packaged along with a model RX-78-2 Gundam and charger stand.

Made with a special inner framework that uses actual metal, the RX-78-2 kit that’s included is a special edition done to commemorate the 30th anniversary of model Gundams. As I mentioned before, the model’s stand doubles as a charge station for the phone, which displays a mock Gundam control console on the phone as its being charged.
