Motorola Patenting A Guitar Cell Phone

My friends, THIS is the iPod killer we've all been looking for.

Motorola is patenting a phone that will be able to act as a musical instrument.  The mobile screen will display a guitar neck, while the keys will trigger "strums" on the guitar.  The guitar chord can be shifted by turning a knob, and can also be switched from major to minor, etc.  The phone can be converted into a violin or banjo...  Barry Fox at NewScientist found the full patent here.

Sounds like fun...but it presents a whole new level of pain in terms of annoying cell phone users... :)
