Gadgets Found in the Akihabara District of Japan

Japanese Solar Powered Cell Phones Stream Live TV: Lucky!

During my travels through Japan, I just had to stop by the Akihabara district. Known as "Electric City," it's packed with blocks and blocks of gadget shops, game arcades, and stores where you can get every kind of cable known to man. It was a geek's dream, and I was living in it.

Cruising around one shop in particular, I noticed how awesome Japanese phones are. Let me start out by saying there aren't many iPhones in Japan — they're way too expensive — and people don't seem to mind. Why? Well, on their slim but lengthy solar-charged flip phones, they can stream TV and watch movies from anywhere in the country. I couldn't help but be jealous of their advanced cell phone tech (and prices — these high tech babies were only about $150 bucks in-store). I say, forget the Solio and give me solar panels on my iPhone!
