Okwap's limited-edition cellphone: blessed by Matsu

Peter Rojas

We'll admit to never having heard of Taiwanese cellphone manufacturer Okwap, who are said to be totally big over there right now (something we suspect is like your band being huge in Belgium), but they're trying to give their handsets a little spiritual edge over the competition with a new divinely-blessed limited-edition cellphone. Each of the 2,000 Matsu phones have been blessed in a ritual at a Matsu temple (Matsu is the Chinese goddess of the sea or something like that) and comes with a hologram of the deity on the back, religious chant ringtones, and Matsu-themed wallpaper. We fully expect Motorola to strike back with a Jesus phone soon, though we'd probably feel bad swearing on one.
