X-RAY Transparent Phone Stuns Us; Hardcore Industrial Design

We know that this is not a concept, but we simply had to share with you the beautiful X-RAY Phone, created by Tokujin Yoshioka. The device bears the KDDI iida branding and it’s already selling in Japan. We love it because it’s got a transparent case, showing all the components inside.

Also, that cool one line LED matrix display is a nice touch, making the handset even more “electronicky”. Specs are not that impressive: infrared connectivity, 3 inch widescreen display, 8MP camera, 828MB of memory and mobile payment support. Anyone know what the price is, for this beauty?

    going for ¥42,000 from kddi’s shop (u could, of course, go bargain-hunting online)…

    i’d beg to differ about the specs not being impressive. to my mind, this is a high-end model, including a 1GHz snapdragon processor and WIN High Speed capabilities as well as connectivity to both CDMA and GSM networks (total 196 countries). i’m very likely going to spring for it over a couple of high-profile offerings from sony ericsson, the S005 and “first-ever” 16 megapixel camera cell phone S006 cybershot… a nice touch to check out: the “life>phone” philosophy inscribed on the inside… very nifty, indeed!

    i should add that i was able to give it a “test-drive” in-store, and it is QUITE responsive. forgot to add the “one-seg” capability to watch and record TV programs… !
