The 'Infobar' looks good enough to eat

Unfortunately for us, this phone is available only in Japan for now.

We always thought the term "candy bar" was something of a misnomer as applied to mobile phones, especially those that more resembled bricks while claiming to be skinnier than they really were a few years back. And giving names like "Chocolate" to sliders and such just confused the matter.

But Au's new "Infobar" actually comes close--not just because it's only 15.5 millimeters thick, but because it's got rounded corners and tapered edges. Kind of like a 3 Musketeers bar, but wider and without the nougat. It also comes in some great colors as pictured here, with checkerboard buttons if so desired.

As for features, it reportedly has a 2.6-inch OLED screen, a 2-megapixel camera and a TV tuner. But alas, its November release is slated only for Japan, according to Akihabara News. Oh well, there's always the leftover Halloween candy.
