NTT DoCoMo releasing an Evangelion-themed Android from Sharp

If you have always dreamed of piloting your very own Evangelion mech…well, you’ll just have to keep dreaming. But NTT DoCoMo and Sharp may have just the thing to make it easier to suspend yourself in such a fantasy world. Set for a June release, the NERV edition Sharp SH-06D is designed to resemble something that would be issued to government employees in postmodern Tokyo-3 and features pre-loaded Evangelion content and UI elements designed by the folks behind the latest movie in the series, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo.

Moving past the fancy packaging, we can expect the same hardware as the standard SH-06D, including a 4.5-inch 720p display. The handset currently runs Android 2.3, but this could change by the phone’s June launch. The NERV Edition SH-06D will be positioned as a tie-in to the latest in the Rebuild of Evangelion series. It will be previewed at the Anime Contents Expo in Chiba later this month.

    These are going to be super expensive when released.  Im Already getting people asking me to take pre-orders for them, and I warned them it will probably easily go over US $1000.00 upon release, since the last Eva model, when it was released sold for about US $1100.00, and it sold out instantly all over Japan…this time its going to be crazy now that this Android Nerv will be unlocked for global use
