We want our phones to be smart for us. Now, it looks like we’re going to ask our phones to bring a little bit of cuteness into our lives. Featuring an iPod-esque thumb-wheel design and a full color screen, it also is overflowing with the cute factor.

It almost looks as if it could walk, and maybe in the next generation, it will hobble across the desk. Oh, and it would be nice if it was a little squishy as well.

This Cute (which is what "kawaii" means in Japanese) phone was designed by Joseph Liang. Stats for "Cute" Smart Phones Trending: Older & Mild
