Sharp Pantone 5 has a radiation detector

That's right this is the world's first gamma ray detecting mobile and step in the right Star Trek tricorder direction

Sharp has just revealed its Pantone 5 mobile which, in a world first, comes packing a radiation detector.

The Pantone 5 is a pretty impressive phone even without the gamma ray reader that manages to detect between .005 and 9.99 μSv/h of radiation – whatever that means. Sharp has packed in a 3.7in ICS display, dust and waterproofing, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and it's available in eight colours. We doubt we’ll get it or, luckily, need it in the UK anytime soon.
