It's not like we haven't seen this idea -- or a close alternative, actually -- conjured up before, but apparently, the Star NX788 is actually taking things beyond the drawing board. This handset features a convenient cubbyhole for your Bluetooth headset, meaning that you'll no longer have to shove it in your pocket only to find all sorts of lint and bacteria clinging on when you chose to use it again. Additionally, the unit sports dual SIM card slots, Chinese handwriting input, a microSD expansion slot, Bluetooth / A2DP support, integrated 1.3-megapixel camera, and a 2.6-inch 320 x 240 touchscreen display. Yeah, we think it looks a little gimmicky too, but those enamored by all this added utility can snag one overseas for around $190.
