Smartphones grab most handset headlines these days, but if the latest devices from, respectively, a Chinese designer and Korean manufacturer Pantech are anything to by then there’s still a market for weird and wacky phones.

Obviously how Green it is depnds on how much you consider the energy required to produce the Cola. Now if it ran on Urine then that would would be green (or at least yellow)!
Then the real question is...
Would you want to put you mouth to something you just peed into? What about the smell?
It'd be funny for a talking point though, 'Hey, you wanna use my iPee?'
Beer because, to me, it smells the same...
At least it might stop muggers wanting to take the piss.
Voice over IP?
Mine's the one on the hook next to the bathroom...
Finally a use
For that muck in a red can.
OK, another use - I seem to remember Mythbusters demonstrating that it's quite useful for cleaning chrome. I've heard that people drink it as well but that just has to be myth.
From what I recall of YouTube videos, its primary use is causing Mentos to explode violently.
"I've been trying to call you all day!"
"Sorry, I drank my phone battery."
Just don't shake the phone
I presume it doesn't have a vibrating ring option either?
NHS Drink awareness app
"Pour what you would have drunk into your phone to calculate how many units you would have drunk.!
@ David Edwards: taking the piss
My thoughts exactly.
Further to this, the phone could analyze the dna in the urine sample and, when matched with the initial (pre-operational) sample, it could allow the authorized user to make a call etc.
It could replace the ID card as an all-in-one personal piss sample dna biometric thingmy watsit.
If you needed a top in the lav whilst out on the razz the device could also warn you of potentially damaging blood / alcohol levels.
Forget the fizzy drinks, we've done enough serious pissing about as a species, let's go yellow and save the humin wace.
Its a good idea
No waiting around to charge now.
Just hope it'll run on the cheaper stuff and not flush it out with the response 'I'm not drinking that'
It seems to me if this is really running on the sugars in the liquid, just straight sugar-water would be much cheaper, less damaging to the phone, and easier to clean. IIRC, coca-cola is some pretty corrosive stuff.
I had to check my calendar then...
I wanted to know if it was April 1st already. Crazy apples those are!
