I can only hope that my current cellphone carrier will one day offer phones as awesome as the phones found among these atypical Softbank sightings. For those of you who don't know, Softbank is a Japanese telecommunications company that creates awesome and original cellphones.

Softbank is unafraid to take risks with its phones, as evidenced by its Gundam and Disney Princess handsets. What makes Softbank's phones so great is that even when they are themed, they still pack a major punch with regards to tech specs.

Aside from themed phones, the company also creates pretty awesome ads such as the one starring Brad Pitt. The company is also pushing the boundaries of what a phone can do by offering free classes that are streamed to students' cellphones. A Gundam phone that teaches you history -- where do I sign?
