Well, you do not see too often. A new phone called the Smart Bar is on sale in Japan on September 22 that combines the retro style of a candybar with a modern 3-inch touchscreen. We are definitely intrigued by the keypad (for obvious reasons), and WVGA screen sports a pixel density of 311ppi admirable, although the rest of the specs are decidedly trivial. The handset is manufactured by Huawei and Qualcomm has a 800MHz MSM7227 SoC, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera and Gingerbread. There is also support for the 802.11n standard (which allows you to attach up to five devices simultaneously), Bluetooth 2.1 and IrDA. It has 3G support on the 2100 and 1700MHz spectrum, with Tri-band 1900 / 1800 / 900 MHz GSM capacity. The Smart Bar will sell for about 29.800 yen ($ 385), where fans of vintage fusion can select from variants in black, white and brown.
