Just what the Stuff office needs – a mobile phone that'll also clear the air.Slip a specially made sheet into this scented Sony Eric and it'll cleanse the smelly atmosphere quicker than you can say 'shake ‘n’ vac'. Up to eleven different pongs are available for the discerning phone sniffer, though there's no word yet on what they'll be. We’ve got our fingers crossed for ‘freshly cut grass’, ‘the smoke from a party popper’ and ‘that Indian takeaway down the road’.It's out soon on the NTT DoCoMo network in Japan but sadly there are no plans to waft the SO703i over in our direction.We hear that us Brits do spend more money on fancy air freshening gadgets than any of our European neighbours though, so it might not be such a stinker if it came here after all.
