Burn calories with this phone

The overall design is simple and unattractive, not what one would expect of normally fashion-conscious Japanese phones.

Toshiba and KDDI, the second-largest mobile operator in Japan, have teamed up to squeeze a calorie counter and pedometer into a mobile phone.

The result? An unusual-looking mobile phone called the Sportia. Not only does this mobile looks "fat," its weird-looking buttons are almost too small to use. Furthermore, the directional buttons are placed on the left side of the phone instead of the usual top central position. The overall design is simple and unattractive, not what one would expect of normally fashion-conscious Japanese phones.

According to Softpedia, the Sportia will be available in mid-June, but only in Japan. The price is yet to be known.
