KDDI Enlists Lady Gaga to Promote Latest Android Handset [VIDEO]

Japanese wireless provider KDDI is using Lady Gaga to promote one of their latest Android-based handsets. A pair of television clips for the Sharp IS03 have made their way online showing a bit more Gaga than Android, but that’s okay. We’ll take any publicity we can get. The Android 2.1-powered phone features e-wallet, infrared, and digital TV broadcasts as well as a 9.6 megapixel camera and 960×640-resolution 3.5-inch touchscreen. Do you guys think it matters having Lady Gaga promote a smart phone?  Would it affect your buying decisions if you saw this here in the United States?

Commercials after the break.

Thanks for the tip, machine!
