the first mobile phone with a cigarette lighter

the mobile phone is the latest addiction for many people and now can be combined with another popular addiction: smoking. the sb6309 by the chinese company seabright is claims to be the world’s first mobile with a built-in cigarette lighter. the phone has a small door on the backside that when opened has a small hole to light a cigarette. the patented device uses no gas and is protected from the wind. not sure we will see this new idea on the next iphone, but it should prove popular in cigarette-crazed china.
