NEC N701i ECO corn phone

NEC is busting out an edible environmentally friendly phone, the N701i ECO, to match their corn laptops. The phone body is made up of 75 percent plant materials, including corn and potatoes. Once disposed of (we hope not before) the phone eventually becomes water and carbon dioxide, leaving the earth free from housing another lame out-of-date phone. Seriously guys, not even mother nature wants to be caught toting that old black and white screened Nokia of yours, or this Bluetooth-less N701i. She's gotta represent.
