RoBoHon -- $457, May 10, 2016

I scraped this because I don't know if it will last long. (It seems early for this, if it's a leak, it will probably disappear.) Thanks to the poster on the Yahoo Finance Message board for posting this.

I've looked the site over. It appears to be a site that sells uniquely Japanese items to people outside of Japan. There is nothing on the website that makes me think it isn't legitimate. I would be surprised if Sharp wants the price information released this early, so I'm expecting this listing to disappear from the sight.

Just in case you want a price comparison (if you think this is expensive, check this item: squatting dog)

Showcased at CEATEC 2015 to great excitement, Sharp's RoBoHon ("robot phone") is going to captivate the world. As Engadget said, it's "is so damn adorable, [you] can't look away from this kawaii singularity". But don't be fooled by the cuteness, this charming robot phone is also full of cool features. There's a projector, moving arms and legs, and he can have a conversation with you!
RoBoHon has a camera for facial recognition and voice recognition. He tells you when you have a message and who from, plus can even respond to commands to read out the message. Hell, he can even sit, dance, and raise him arms to let you know he's about to tell you something.

  • Height: approx. 19.5cm (7.7")
  • Weight: approx. 390g (13.8 oz)
  • Display: 2-inch (QVGA)
  • 3G, WiFi, LTE
  • CPU: MSM 8926 1.2HGz (quad-core)
  • Talks only in Japanese
  • Instructions: Japanese

This product is expected in stock on Tuesday 10 May, 2016.
