The PHS Heart 401AB Adopts a Cute Phone Shape

Most mobile phones have a slim rectangular shape, but this fun phone shape is designed to transform into a heart. The PHS Heart 401AB from the ABIT Corporation only functions as a phone that can make calls and store contact information, but in sacrificing Internet, email and text messaging capabilities, this phone is able to adopt a novel shape.

Using a twisting motion, the phone is able to transition from a heart into a smooth rounded form that brings up a small display. Since there is no keypad, one neat thing about this design is that users are able to input a number by tracing its shape on the surface of the phone. When it's time to hang up a call, a conversation can be ended by twisting the phone back into the shape of a heart.
