HandSolo - a new wireless phone

Wireless giant Qualcomm ginned up an elaborate joke on April Fool's Day, inventing a product called the HandSolo -- a "device-free" wireless phone whose name nods to "Star Wars." Customers get a chip implanted in their pinky finger that turns their hand into a cellphone and MP3 player, all explained in a video on the company's Web site.

The HandSolo is the first ultra-portable handheld device designed to streamline the way you use mobile technology. It comes complete with advanced mobile features such as an optical camera, unlimited expandable memory storage, and 24 hour battery life.
