Cigarette phone packs real smokes

More reason to smoke in China

We'd think this was a gag gift were it not coming from Asia, which is notorious for its nicotine-addicted societies. A Chinese company is marketing a working GSM phone that, according to Gearfuse, actually holds a half-pack of real cigarettes in a case on the back of the handset. The phone itself has a camera, color display and MP3 compatibility. And if you're willing to spring $175, you can get the "luxurious VIP kit," which includes a lighter and pack of Chonghwa smokes, as well as the phone, in a commemorative box.
