Cut out your Karma with the Buddha Phone


The Buddha cell phone probably does not adhere to the Buddha’s Middle Path in design or appearance, but incorporates Buddhist aesthetics – down to the startup screen and ringtones!

The specs for this customized Nokia N70 are downright flashy – a “golden” outer case that has apparently been made by using 24-carat gold plating over a steel base, a huge “jade” button for video (looks more like plastic), and a jewel encrusted camera. The other “regular” features include bluetooth, mp3/mp4 compatibility and video or still photography (duh). The screen also has handwriting recognition – which means, for example, you could just pull out the pen concealed at the side and write down insights that you might want to share with others. Pretty handy.

Still hungry for more spirituality? Satisfy yourself with the religious symbols running all over the phone and the serene Buddha himself embossed on the back. For now, everything else about this Nokia such as the pricing and availability remain as mysterious as the Enlightened One himself.
