Cellphones

The Neon Genesis Evangelion SH-06D smartphone was the result of a collaboration between Japan’s NTT DoCoMo and Evangelion for the upcoming movie, and features a large 4.5-inch (1280×720) screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and runs Android 2.3. But the star of the show is the awesome chassis and the even more awesome custom Android skin designed to look like a console from the series.

Of course, actually using this ridiculously cluttered UI is another matter. Not that anyone really cares with a phone like this.

Unfotunately, the phone looks to be exclusive to Japan. The closest the rest of us will get is the video after the break, which shows it spinning on a little turntable for 63 seconds.

If you view your iPhone as a communication and information weapon that kicks the sh*t out of inconvenience and ignorance on a daily basis, why not visualize that belief with this Knucklecase? Billed as the “ultimate tool for securing a phone to hand” the Knucklecase will provide the look of brass knuckles while draining your wallet and making it an ordeal to fit your phone in your pocket.

We’ve seen a Steve Jobs in Carbonite iPhone case in the past, but that was quickly shot down by Apple laywers. We expect Lucasfilm to do something similar with this high-res Han Solo version being sold on Etsy, but if you act quickly you can grab one for only $14.

We’ve already established that the Bat Phone can handle social media just as well as Superman’s iPhone 4S, but the question is does it have an assistant as good as Siri?

Find out after the break.

If you own an iOS device and have been craving new reading material, you’re in luck.

The have a graphic novel interpretation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and titles from authors like Neil Gaiman. The books start at $7 (via the iBooks app), and to get you hooked Marvel’s offering The New Avengers #1 for free for a limited time.

It’s more of a TARDIS cozy really, and there’s basically no point to it—but I’ll be dammed if I wouldn’t rather charge my phone in one.

Full instructions on how to build one yourself are available on Craftzine.

Who needs clunky combination locks when you can use an app? Zeon Tech has debuted nerdy TARDIS and R2-D2 Smartsafes at the Toy Fair in London that can be unlocked with a smartphone. You just need to download a free app and enter the passcode that you’ve designated. You can’t fit a ton of valuables in them, but then again, I’d feel weird about storing anything expensive in a TARDIS. The models will be out in the UK in June and will retail at £19.99 or around $31.

See a picture of the R2-D2 safe and watch how the safe works in the video after the break.

The next time you lose your iPhone, you might need to look for it in 1969 because it could have traveled through time and space thanks to these TARDIS skins.

The skin is available for several gadgets like the iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook and the Motorola Droid.

Something tells me that the sound quality of these MP3 Star Wars speakers will be on par with Vader breathing through his helmet, but you can’t beat the novelty factor. Pre-order for April 2012 in Vader, Fett and Stormtrooper versions.

The Boba Fett and Stormtrooper versions are pictured after the break.
