LG-SH240 Slider Cell Phone Mimics Human Skin

Are you lonesome tonight… Do you miss me tonight…

LG has taken Korean weirdness to a whole new level with the creation of the LG-SH240 cell phone. The main selling point of this handset is that the keypad mimics the feel of real human skin. I understand that there is a certain appeal to ditching the cold confines of metal and plastic, but mimicking human skin? That’s got to be pretty creepy.

Beyond the skin-like silicon texture on the keypad, the LG-SH240 is pretty tame by Korean standards, getting equipped with a 2 megapixel camera and video calling capabilities. It’s not a bad-looking phone, but the whole “touch me because I feel like skin” marketing scheme is just too weird for me.
