Limited Edition Gundam Phone from Softbank

The 30th anniversary celebrations for Gundam are continuing some of the events I have already blogged about include the opening of a Gundam Cafe and life-sized Gundam being displayed in Tokyo that is expected to return but this time to Shizuoka in July. Japan is also a country crazy about mobile phones so it is no surprise that Softbank is looking to capitalize by pairing Gundam with a top-of-the-line cellular phone.

Specs and Goodies

The phone is a sexy powerhouse sporting a 12.1 megapixel camera, 3.4 inch OLED screen and Gundam themed software and tones to really immerse the user, but the real treat is the 1/100 scale of the RX-78-2 Gundam model, decals and dock it comes with.

Gundam Phone Price

The limited edition Gundam Phone is expected to debut this summer for ¥73, 920 and though quite pricey are expected to fly off the shelves prompting Softbank to announce that there will be with a limit of one per customer. I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering just how much it costs in other currencies so I did the conversions at today’s rates for you. ¥73, 920 is us$820 or €670.
