Mobile phone junkies who simply cannot wait for the next-generation 3G handsets may soon be able to satisfy their lust for communications device functionality with the latest innovation from Yugoslavia.

This urban accessory dispenses with voice functions, mailboxes and text messaging, and instead offers the user the ability to communicate via four .22 rounds at the touch of a button.

According to an abcnews.com report, police in the Netherlands first discovered the waptastic widowmaker during a drugs raid.

The phone is said to be indistinguishable from a normal mobile. Closer inspection, however, reveals that the innards have been ripped out and replaced with four live rounds and firing pin.

Naturally, the U.S. Customs Service is taking a close interest in the device. Although no 'cell phone guns' have yet been reported Stateside, officers will be keeping a sharp look-out at US ports of entry. ®
