The new Toshiba Softbank 815T PB is a robot/cellphone hybrid made for a Japanese TV show called Ketai Sousakan 7 that transforms into a robot and back to a cell phone just like the robots in the Transformer movie. If you look at the pictures of the gadgets, you will see partially articulated robot-like faces and the phones even come with built-in Transformer-themed games. The hybrids come in silver and black with a QVGA screen and a 3.2 megapixels camera and right now the presumed plans are for the phones to be sold only in Japan. The grand release of the robot cellphones is scheduled for April of this year.
