Japan’s Smelly Phones

Japanese operator DoCoMo is releasing a new phone to the market that has a special compartment for scented sheets that release a relaxing smell when the phone is open.

The user has a choice of 11 different smells with a matching top panel design which slot into the SO703i, made by Sony Ericsson. Once open a ‘relaxing odour’ is emitted, which will supposedly calm a user when making a call.

No one is quite sure what these 11 smells will be, but we think future versions will have a multiple smell feature to replace ringtones. Roses for when the other half calls, a waft of beer when it’s your buddy on the line. What’s that god awful smell? The mother-in-law calling.
