Cell Phones: the Weird and the Wacky

From the World’s Largest Cell Phone to the Zack Morris Phone and even a gold-plated iPhone, here on our blog we’ve shared some off-the-wall phones with you. However, today we might just have the wildest and wackiest phones yet.

Check out these three bizarre phones from around the world—you just might change your mind about waiting in line for the iPhone 5!

A Porsche branded cell phone. The ultimate in speed dialing luxury? We’re not sure, but we can say that this phone is definitely not something you see every day. In 2007, the Porsche cell phone was sold in Hong Kong for $164.

From a company called HiPhone comes this iPod Nano look-a-like. While it appears to have a rotary style dial, it actually requires that you press the buttons (unlike the actual Nano). These were popular in China in 2009, so who knows what they’re disguising phones as today.

This cell phone has a bonus feature… a stun gun. Yep, press a button and stun away. The stun gun cell phone also includes a flashlight and operates on battery power. As of 2009, the stun gun cell phone retailed for $79.95, but we’re assuming you won’t be able to find a similar model now… This is certainly one approach to safety, but for a better approach, we suggest a Wireless Leash!

These are just a few of the weird and wacky cell phones out there available to purchase, but we want to see some of the more recent models.

Leave us a comment below telling us about the weirdest cell phone you’ve seen (or heard about) lately!
