Pedant alert!

Nicotine doesn't stain. Even if it did can you imagine how many ciggies would be needed?

Airport security

I wouln't want to try and get one of those through airport security. I'm certain they'd suspect anyone carrying one of these to be some jihadist nutter hell bent on setting his (or her) undercrackers on fire over a populated area.

This would also be handy...

Grenade because there is no underwear bomb icon.

Clever marketing

When Nokia had all those exploding batteries - they should have just relaunched it as a campfire-starting outdoors survival phone.

Actually

I geninely wouldn't quite like this if it was integrated into an actual decent phone. One less thing to carry around in my pocket.

I'd love one

I think anyone who at least occasionally smokes would love this option on their phone. Not enough to switch from the phone I have now, but it is a nice feature. A shame smoking is such a taboo now-a-days that a big phone company would never make one.

Wrong priority...

Personally, I would rather be able to make the odd phone call with my lighter.

You're never alone with a Strand.

Just a mis-understanding

When the brief said for a lighter phone the engineer just got confused.

Hmm

They also claim that the phone is a touch screen, can sing and dance and clean your home for you and all for just over £40?

Go on - someone try buying one and let us know if your money disappears into a black hole...
