I have never been so proud to own an LG Android phone - I got the hot one!

Also, Apple-kun looking like a stuck up little twit...wow, the character designers know the brands well =D.

You can't beat the one time Aqua Teen had amphaphromorpic Boost Mobile phones. They can try though.

Helloooooooo Sam Sung-chan!

Of course the American is blonde with huge boobs. What else would an American woman look like?

The cast for a harem show featuring Apple as the male lead? No, I don't like it.

Yep something tells me this will help make the Android smartphone sell better in Japan. This is sort of clever.

Tch. Makes me wish my cell provider had some decent HTC phones when I had decided to upgrade so I wasn't stuck with Samsung.

My only reaction to this was "LG is Korean?". That amused me because I just put an LG TV on layaway.

Also, dang, I have an iPhone. Why don't I get a cute girl?

As a female, I'm actually quite happy that the iPhone is a bishie Laughing (though the part about his father passing away in Oct. 2011 is pretty sad).

Well... this could be ineteresting. Motorola (Black M on the head), HTC (Bliss style design on the skirt) and Apple were quite obvious as far as appearance. You have to read the info for the others to figure out which is which. Has anyone read any of this? Is it actually any good? And does anyone else think Samsung should have had a lawyer standing behind her?

Same. It's at once a fitting and touching tribute, and a potentially tasteless detail.

That said, I personally am glad they included it.
