There's no reason for a phone to be priced that high. Key things it should be able to do are make and receive calls and send and receive sms/emails. It is wrong to be forking out that amount of money on something that is basically just a tool.

Kanako, has my official seal of approval, Aya however needs to go back to the drawing board to learn how not to do it

Aya thinking: "They can have it back when they pry it from my cold dead hand"

meanmutha...agree. Saw an ad the other day for a new condo development, and the headline was: "Beyond The Premium". Premium has become a noun here.

"aya ueto has really let herself go"

I disagree. She looks great, as does Kanako.

"The Tiffany model features 537 diamonds"

Wow!

Aya Ueto. How someone with so little talent can be used to sell such crap at such a high price -- says a lot about what we've come to.

From the picture Aya looks older than Kanako.

Aya has some nice legs.

That shaggy orange mop of bleached hair look has never done a whole lot for me. Keep it long and black, Japanese chicks.

This may not be the best picture of Aya but she's still cute.

I like this one better.

My confession. They both look good, hot. Double date anyone, and after...?

True Kanako has the best of make-up on, but that woman has kept herself in best of shape. Amazing looking woman I will agree.

I noted someone, above complaining about the hair colour of the 22 year old & agree that I would prefer women to keep their hair at normal colour. Some can have their hair cut short, but bushy is not to my liking, though short cut hair & well taken care of, by a dresser, can look good, only so costly.

"that shaggy orange mop bleached hair"...by captdingle: hahaha lol at your description of her hair.

and yes i agree with the other people above...only in japan. I do miss it though!

Well it's getting better, Moddie. Thanks for the correction. It should read "The Tiffany model features 537 diamonds that together weigh 18.34 carats."
