Willcom's "Torch Light" concept handset

Japan's Willcom wants earthquake and tsunami situations not to affect your wireless calls or your emergency lighting. By that, we mean that the "Torch Light" handset can be used as an emergency lighting device (say, if power goes out) and will allow you to place that all-important call if local cell towers and antenna structures are still standing. This concept handset uses a WSIM card to access PHS wireless networks (read: not many), so don't expect it 'round these parts any time soon.
