NTT docomo's wooden cell phone "TOUCH WOOD" was exhibited at CEATEC JAPAN 2009. Looks good, feels good and apparently green, it kind of reminds you of ASUS's Bamboo Notebook.
Read on for details and pics.

A corner featuring "TOUCH WOOD".
Made of hinoki(Japanese cypress), each handsets will have unique grain pattern and hue. Using thinned wood, it's also eco-friendly.
Another model, based on Sharp's SH-04A.
Stretching the 1seg antenna.
Made with "3D Compression Forming Process" technology of Olympus.
Mockup of a concept model. Feels really good in your hand.
A questionnaire on "TOUCH WOOD" was taken at the booth. Hope they get good enough reception to be commercialized.
