Kuma phone takes a bear hike

Willcom of Japan knows that one of a lady's weak spot is her affinity for soft, cuddly toys, and teddy bears are a classic favorite. They have decided to capitalize on this market by releasing a cell phone teddy bear known as the Kuma Phone. Recently demonstrated at the 2008 Good Design Expo in Tokyo, you get the full range of cell phone functionality with this soft handset. For example, you squeeze one of its four paws to access a speed dial number or make a call, while answering/hanging up the phone will require you to pull the tail. Might sound rather incredulous for you to torture a cute teddy bear, but at least it is unique. The Kuma Phone will retail for $500, so that's really a purchase only for those who want (and dare) to be different.
