In Kyoto we found another amazing cell phone the other day.
On a hot somewhat cloudy day, a young woman was yammering on her phone while out on a shopping expedition with a friend.
The friend was also talking on her phone--not nearly as decorated--and when they both finally hung up, we asked for a picture.
After a bit of hemming and hawing, the woman, a college student, agreed.
She said that every morning the first thing she did upon waking up was glance at her phone for a sign of a call or instant message.
"Just the look of it glittering on my bed stand makes me feel good, even on the rare day when there is no message. And the heft of it feels good in my palm!"
Her friend couldn't help adding however: "You just like to show off, just look at your mini-skirt and sun glasses!"
