As mentioned by an announcement three months ago, Evangelion and Docomo has teamed up to create a new NERV mobile phone and is expected to be available in the market sometime this month. Compared to its predecessor, the SH-06D NERV phone will be running on a smartphone, powered by Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) mobile operating system, and prides itself on giving a whole new experience with a 4.5-inch touchscreen display, a 1.2GHz dual core processor, and a couple of unique applications designed by Studio Khara. The customized UI, taking very minute details from what was shown from Neon Genesis Evangelion, is what makes it an absolute eyecandy.
This video shows a less-than-two-minutes experience with the phone.
And this might just be the perfect mobile buddy for every NGE fanboy out there, especially now that everyone is eagerly awaiting for the next Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy installment, You Can (Not) Redo. Unfortunately, there’s very limited stocks for this phone and will not be sold anywhere outside Japan.
Here’s the PR video for SH-06D NERV.
