Pantone colored mobiles

With the large mobile phone market over in Japan, it never cease to amaze me what you can find there. Case in point is Softbank (aka Vodafone) latest venture and it illustrates just how demanding this market can be. The company introduced a set of Sharp-manufactured SoftBank 812SH devices in 20 (yes, that’s TWENTY) different shades based on Pantone color chart. That’s 20 color variations to suit almost any personal style.

Personally I’m looking toward the Softbank 707SC. It has only 130MB internal memory and no expansion slots, but its sleek 11.9mm body and overall design is an attention grabber. I’m thinking of getting this phone purely as a style statement.
