Koi Phone

This Koi phone or more accurately called the Infobar-Nishikigoi has become a sort after classic in Japan (the home of koi) and now discontinued will likely become a collectors piece.The Koi phone has been around now in Japan for a few years aimed at their fashionable buyers attracted by its colourful design. The Nishikigoi perfect captures the Japanese meaning of the word and the look of a koi their national fish, unlike the new Kyocera KX2 Koi Phone which must have different meanings.

Sad to see the "Koi Phone" go. I was perhaps the one of the first users to purchase one when it came out years ago---it bought on the first day of public sale. Ironically, the Koi Phone never made it through Japan's rainy season. Damn, I wish they would make these phones more Koi like.
