The interchangeable colours thing is a nice touch, but I'm personally going to stick with my silver/grey phone... Somewhat less austentatious, I find.

No. Emphatically no. LEGO: WTF? You make toys. Leave the cell phone industry alone. Remember what happened when you decided to try making jewelry?

Yeah, LEGO has done things like this before, but this is just taking it too far in my opinion.

Interesting, but this just looks odd to me. I mean, who would buy something like this...not me for one! But for those of you who lvoe this idea, I wouldn't hold it against you ;) .

You know, I saw that online (found on my own :-) ) and with 4 kids, the three older ones (ages 11,13,16) just got cell phones, maybe my fourth (who is the only boy age 2) may get one like that when he is ready (read: older). Plus, of all of the kids, he shows the most excitement and aptitude toward building with Lego. He would totally love that. If we are being totally honest, I kinda would too.

Ya know, that's just creepy.

I don't know why I dropped back here again lately. LEGO can no longer hold my interest, and I'm almost certainly gone forever. Bye to all who remember me.

How? You might not like the design, but I don't think it's creepy. I actually like it. I won't get one, but I think it looks kinda cool.

Does LEGO really think this is going to have good sales? Not many ten year olds have cell phones, and I can't see a 16 year old kid or a 30 year old man using one of these, so it doesn't look so great for this phone. Maybe LEGO will start offering home appliances soon, like ovens, blenders, and refrigerators ;)

I should clairify. The color scheme is just creepy. I don't like that red with that blue. The design is cool. Sorry for any confusion. Carry on.

I love the way you can interchange the colours but I can't picture myself actually using one of those. I'm enough of a geek as it is.

Meh, I want a brick phone. Like a frakking 10" x 4" x 3" cube of plastic with a screen and buttons and actually like a LEGO brick so if you buy more then one you can build something.

Not that I would buy it or anything...

No different to me than a 'bag charm' or 'key ring minifigure.' If they build it, I will c... I mean buy it. :D
Do something.
