OK, so what is "RoBoHon" supposed to mean? Your "Robot Honey"? First, get a better name.

This is not new, was already introduced in October 2015:

I am not sure about a $2000 crappy plastic gimmick made phone which will fit perfectly in your pocket, even if coupled with a few servos is a revolutionary idea but as long as SHARP believes it will save them out of the red, keep it on.

Hahaha, everyone is seemingly interested in the lady not RoBoHon. I exactly agree.

And it's things like this that sent Sharp bankrupt

WHY?

I would be embarrassed with a big / colorful phone case, let alone walking down the street talking with one of these things.

Exactly, something like this is only a novelty product. Sadly,Japan Inc. has lost the ability to come up with any innovation that excites domestically or worldwide.

It looks like she is holding the RoBoHon as a phone. Anyway, she would be the 'Hon' - that would make it a RoBoFon!

Not exactly a comfortable fit in your pocket; the phone, not the girl.

Are people downgrading Tina out of spite? She only said what it really means.

I think it's a nice little novelty item, but not at that price.

Thank you Thunderbird2

I think the price is reasonable considering it could be a companion for the old people. It would be nice if RoBoHon can call 119 in an emergency.

And it is stupid stuff like this Sharp keeps posting net losses.
