The "Oyjai" cell phone charm has been a hit with Strapya readers for a while, but I didn't truly understand the wonder of it until l I saw it in the flesh. Like the Nintendo DM Cell Charm this novelty charm comes straight to geeksugar from Japan via reader chuger. My translation expert tells me that "Oyjai" means "old man," which helps explain the charms online ad: "Have you ever experienced 'Friday night' in shinbashi, Japan? You might see tons of oyaji drunken and making a scene everywhere." And I ask: Is there anything funnier than a drunken man clutching his bottle? As long as it's all fun and games, I think that answer is decidedly no.
If you're a hardcore Nintendo follower you have probably already feasted your eyes on the DS Cell Phone Charm, but for the rest of you here's a geeky - albeit girly - treat. When our resident tech spy wasn't snapping photos of LG ads in Korea and Japan, he managed to pick me up this adorable "Nintendo DM Lite" cell phone charm. Instead of the double LED screens it sports a "Dobble Mirror" so you can check and make sure your lip gloss is popping before making a call. A replica of the Nintendo DS Lite, this Nintendo DM Lite even features the token A, B, X, Y and D-Pads, but sadly does not include the new camera and Face Training game add on or Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. Sigh. A girl can only ask for so much. Is it chic enough to accompany your cell?

Japan is definitely an accessory crazed nation, so when I saw these unique cell-phone straps from Strapya I didn't even bat an eyelash. From school girl uniforms, a yoga guru, a Hello Kitty charm and even a gremlin with matching colored phone, these straps add personal style to generic cell phones. Do you think these straps will soon be a thing of the past? Or will their popularity continue to grow in Japan but not in North America? Leave your thoughts and comments below!
There's hip-hop bling bling, old school bling bling, antique bling bling and now, cell phone bling bling? Famous Japanese jewelers Diaddict has put a 100 million yen ($850,000) diamond-decorated mobile phone strap in their Nihombashi department store of Takashimaya Co.
The one-of-a-kind strap is iced with a 6.02-carat yellow diamond, a 0.61-carat blue diamond, a 0.36-carat pinkish diamond and a total of 2.10 carat in colorless diamonds.
According to Luxury Launches, many shoppers stop to admire the beautiful diamond decorated strap. All frivolity aside, it is an incredibly beautiful diamond, but imagine how dramatic the buyer will be every time she picks up the phone.
