KDDI Unveils Transparent Cell Phone

KDDI, Japan’s second largest mobile carrier, greets the final quarter of 2010 with 19 new handsets, one of which stands out because of its transparent design.

The phone, aptly called X-Ray, features a 3-inch LCD display, a LED sub-display with 7 x 102 resolution, an 8-megapixel camera, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a digital TV tuner, and a microSDHC slot. All of these is encased in a transparent cover, enabling users to see what is inside the phone.

Design-wise, it looks good, but I do not think the novelty will last.

The X-Ray phone by KDDI will go on sale in Japan beginning next month, costing US$490.
