N96 Bruce Lee edition – enter the handset

Duncan Geere Mobile phones 1 Comment


Yes, you read that right. Bruce Lee edition. If you didn’t think the N96 could be any cooler, then you’ve got a problem, because it’s not exactly the coolest handset around, but it has just got a smidgen cooler, thanks to this launch. Sadly, it’s Hong Kong only so far.

The handset comes with Lee’s trademark glare on the back cover, as well as a bunch of accessories and a Bruce Lee doll. Several rare photos of the actor are stored on the phone’s memory. It costs 8,788 Chinese Yuan (£870!), and you’ll need to know some Chinese to buy it.
