King of Pop wants to be the new Apple

pepsiA maker of fizzy, brown, bubbly stuff which removes rust off old coins wants to get into the smartphone business.

Pepsi, which once thought it was a good idea to promote itself using the alleged kiddie-fiddler  and coke fan Michael Jackson, now thinks that there are not enough smartphones in the world.

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn which says that Pepsi’s official Weibo has also teased a phone. It has a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution and 13MP camera, the device is allegedly powered by a 1.7 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. What’s more, the phone, which is expected to be called the Pepsi P1, and is likely to cost only $200.

The Pepsi phone is pretty much standard fare. It does not even have a bottle opener, not that fizzy, brown, bubbly stuff comes in bottles much these days.

It is thought that Pepsi has licensed its brand to another device manufacturer but it is not clear which one or why.

Still the phone’s low cost and Pepsi’s brand recognition could mean that it does ok. We are not holding our breath.
