From the forum:
LG makes my dream come true by releasing an actual banana phone,its purely built with ergonomics and handling in mind.

LG must have heard our cries for a Banana style phone because they have finally listened us and announced the LG-SV80, it has 142MB of internal memory, a MP3 player and has a 1.3 MP Camera and dimensions are 4x48x23 body and a weight of 105g.Unfortunately this banana phone seems like a Korean release phone only for now but it might wing over to our european shores if annoy the hell out of LG with the Banana Phone song!

I'm sure most of you would have heard the catchy tune that is Ring,Ring,Ring Banana phone by now,well if you haven't then you can catch it here in esato forums source:akihabaranews

Motorola beat LG to this with the RIZR Z8, a slider that curves slightly when opened (like a banana?). It was announced at 3GSM 2007:

Hey!.. Thats a cool, quirky concept! I like it. I wouldn't buy one, though.

People in Korea must be mistaking banana's for phones all the time :)
