Japan and South Korea get the coolest toys (I do believe that fact is codified in several international treaties) and this solar powered cellphone is but yet another example of this. Originally likened to a mini Nintendo GameBoy SP by British mag T3, the prototype runs on the energy provided by the sun's magnificent rays. Granted, if you live anywhere where the sun likes to play hide and seek more often than not (such as New York City), you might end up on a certain creek without a certain paddle. A few more pics of this hot jawn are after the jump.

No indication if this prototype will ever go on sale, let alone in the U.S., but one can always hope... only after moving to the Caribbean, though.

greysky, they did better than that, they made a Gameboy MICRO!

(But get a DS Lite instead)

I like the design! You can't argue about how robust it is that's for sure!

I'm sure alot of people might be leaving a phone on a window sill anyway, so why not make use of it?
