Everyone wants a cell phone that's eye-candy, but what about nose-candy?

Sony hasn't forgotten about your keen olfactory senses and has therefore introduced the new "smell phone." The DoCoMo SO703i comes with an aroma sheet to treat your beak.

Implications - With 11 different scents available, including apple pie, you are sure to find one that will please your sense of smell. The aromas are released from replaceable strips that are attached near the hinge. Each strip is guaranteed to last for up to three months, but seem to last for a bit longer. If you get tired of smelling the same scent, simply change the strip to your next favorite fragrance.
