Ever thought "wouldn’t it be totally awesome to the max if my belt was both a trouser restraining device and a phone"? Yeah, me too. And now NEC has answered our prayers.
The belt-phone, show above, was showcased at the Wireless Japan expo earlier this week. Specifications were patchy, but from what I can tell the buckle makes up the main handset, while the leather strap has the keys embedded into it somehow.
This is a fantastic phone when you’re just sitting about in your underwear, as you do. But methinks it’s not so practical when you’re having a stroll and that important business call comes through. But then perhaps this phone is aimed at the hip-hop lover, many of whom walk around with their trousers hanging around their arses anyway.
