Cigarette lighter phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2009

Cigarette lighter phoneThe SB6309 Lighter Phone may or may not be real. It’s a phone with a cigarette lighter built-in. Just flip it over, slide back the protective cover, and light your smoke on the glowing square. Now smoking will not only kill you, but your phone battery as well.

It has three available colors, red, brown and black. And there’s no Surgeon Generals warning anywhere on this phone. There should be, because we think these are likely to give you third degree burns while in your pocket.

DoCoMo SH-08A Solar Hybrid PhoneDoCoMo is working on the Solar Hybrid phone, a “solar-powered” phone that is also rugged enough to be “waterproof”, according to DoCoMo. It comes with an 8 Megapixel camera too, so this one is made for outdoor shooting.

It’s not entirely “solar-powered” as it can’t run on solar power alone. It’s more of a “solar assisted” device. 10 minutes in direct sunlight will give you a whopping 1 minute of talk time. Oh and “waterproof” means that the phone can stay in water for 30mn and no deeper than 1 meter.

boltbrowser-sbWhen it comes to browsing the Internet on a mobile phone, not all browsers are created equal. I hate the type of mobile browser that breaks a site out of its PC format and gives you a big long page of text and links to read.

Nokia N97 gets abused on videoIf you’re still on the fence about a Nokia N97 purchase, this may sway you one way or another. I mean, it’s important to know how a phone fares when it’s dunked into breakfast cereal. N97Geeks.com has given it a torture test.

Aside from cereal dunking, they try to scratch the screen and the body. The end result is a still almost fully functional and slightly scuffed handset with a broken menu key. So we can only conclude that the phone should survive even the harshest breakfast. Video below
