I think there are going to be so many people in the U.S. kicking themselves that this totally awesome phone is only being released in Japan. I do admit I am one of those people kicking myself in the butt that this phone is not available in the U.S. To be perfectly honest it may not sell very well here though since, most people find flip phones to be too out of style. With the new “in” thing being touch screen Android or IOS phones this does not have too great of a future. The worst part is it that this phone has some pretty good features such as a T.V. tuner, 8mp camera, and come on it’s see through. That in itself is enough reason to check this phone out. I do hope they will come out with a phone with a similar design concept as this in the U.S.
