Evangelion Docomo Foma Sharp Phone Price soars on Ebay
Posted by LadyPSerenity in News Articles August 30, 2009 at 10:06:11 AM

While doing my morning browse of the news this morning I came across an interesting article on AnimeNews.Biz.
The article is talking about a certain ebay user placing the new Evangelion Docomo Foma phone from Sharp on ebay for sale at 1,500 as a starting bid. While there is a very clear screen cap on the site showing the ebay listing, I'm a skeptic and I decided to head over to ebay to see if I could find this phone there for myself. Surely fans of Evangelion would not go so far as to spend two entire paychecks... well two entire paychecks for me... on a cellphone. Even if it is designed after the Evangelion phones. So I searched, and low and behold there it was. Not the identical same listing as shown in that particular article but two seperate listings for the phone with the price over 1,400 US (1,500 CAD)

Now while I think the phone itself looks cool, it's missing the key parts to make the phone work overseas and even then you're not guaranteed to make the phone work with your provider. What good is that? Even still, I can't see myself ever paying more than four to five hundred for a phone, and that's pushing it, because I typically only spend a hundred.

But for those who are interested there it is. the Limited Edition Evangelion Cell Phone. It can be found in a simple search on ebay. Or you can wait a bit and see if the price goes down and some more pop up...
