so i bought myself a sexy new jap-phone on the third day here.
i tried really hard to get my iPhone working in Japan, i searched the web for solutions and called customer service hotlines of several cellular network providers weeks before my trip. i love my apple phone and don't see anything else that could take its place, especially not on my stay in Tokyo.
but it seems like the only company that sells the iPhone here, Softbank, has blocked every possibility to use one that hasn't been purchased with their contract in their store.
anyway, now i'm really glad i could find a good excuse to buy one of those fancy Japanese phones, 'keitai'.
my new sweetheart is the light pool by iida, a beautifully designed phone with a
completely unnecessary cool led-animated back.
it's pure eye candy.
here's the phone in action, with a nice soundtrack by Perfume and a really really pretty haafu-lady.
