Pomegranate Phone: “iPhone Killer” Worthy of the Name
Finally… a mobile phone on the market that’s actually worthy of the “iPhone Killer” moniker. The Pomegranate Phone has a pretty impressive list of features, once you go through them all.
From the rumors circulating around, I think they’ve gotten the firmware issues resolved. And now, it’s just a matter of finding the right distribution in the US (this phone has been available overseas for about a month now).

Yeah, I was trying to not give things away. But it’s totally a hoax.I fell for it at first, and thought it was a real phone up until the coffee bit. Then, when I looked at the “features” list… I realized what was going on. :)Really well done though. Now THIS is something to aspire to, next April 1st!avoision (May 6, 2009 at 11:32 pm)
Clever ad campaign, though! (though what a lot of work just to get people to visit!)Robin (May 7, 2009 at 6:50 am)
It’s good for them that it’s a hoax, otherwise NBC would probably sue the shit out of them over the logo.Mellzah (May 7, 2009 at 5:51 pm)
