Japanese cellphones to turn into ‘robot’ buddies

For those who feel a bit lonely just talking on the phone, a Japanese company is offering a cellphone that turns into a robot buddy ready to chat.

Softbank Mobile Corp.’s new mobile line looks like a small humanoid with attachable arms and legs, with the screen showing various faces.

If the user calls a particular person many times, a text phrase such as “You’re calling her often these days, aren’t you?” might appear coming out of the face’s mouth, according to Softbank Mobile spokesman Katsuhide Furuya.
