Toshiba Unveils a Robot of a Phone

From the “this looks really cool but would I actually want one” files comes the new Transformer phone from Toshiba.

Transformer.jpgYes, it does indeed “transform” from a typical flip phone into a robot sort of thing – complete with arms, legs and special wallpaper designed to look like a robot face, according to Cellular-news.

Unfortunately for gadget freaks, it will only be available in Japan through mobile operator Softbank, which missed the opportunity to give the transforming phone a fitting moniker and saddled it with “SoftBank 815T PB.”
