Nowadays, if a company isn't ready to wade into the ultra-competitive waters of the smart phone market it needs to find other ways to distinguish its cell phone products. Along those lines, Japan's KDDI has decided to partner with art star Yayoi Kusama to offer a line of phones bearing her signature polka-dot designs.
One unit called the My Doggie Ring-Ring (extra points for "baby talk" product name) actually molds a phone into a tiny, dotted dog holder, while another takes a somewhat creepy approach to the tactile polka-dot motif. Kusama's art usually fetches a hefty price so while no details have been released, it's expected that the phones will sell for upwards of 1,000,000 yen ($10,000).
