X-ray phone flashes its guts for all to see

If you're into all the tiny modules that work together to let you make a call and send a text message, this phone might be for you. Unfortunately, it's Japan-only for now.

Transparent keypads and displays on handsets are so passe now that the X-ray phone is here to show off its guts in their full glory. If you're into electronic circuitry, microchips, and all the tiny modules that work harmoniously together to let you make a call and send a text message, then the X-ray phone might be for you.

Created by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka, the X-ray comes with a 7x102 dot-matrix LED sub-panel that displays the current time and incoming e-mail alerts, as well as an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with an onboard photo light.

Three colors--deep red, black, and blue--are available for the polycarbonate chassis reinforced with glass fiber. Unfortunately for some, it's sold only by KDDI in Japan for now.
