Wii Phone Rumor?

A Wii Phone from Nintendo? C'mon; this seems a little far fetched, or is it? Recently we've seen the iPhone, rumors of a Zune Phone and now this.

According to T3 there is a distinct possibility that Nintendo may be coming out with some type of phone combined with the console remote. There had been some rumors last year about adding a microphone to the controller, and Nintendo has been taking advantage of internet based services with the Wii console, lately. This combination could possibly lend itself nicely to some type of VoIP service.

T3 found this information via the patent office showing plans of a Wii remote looking device with gaming keys and what looks like a dialing keypad. I wonder what kind of damage someone could do with this? We'll keep watching…

They are, or at least appear, to be exactly the same as the bottom of the standard wiimote. They are lights which indicate which controller number you are using. Similar to the lights around the xbox button (whatever its called) or the top side of a 6axis.

If it was then maybe the B button would be where it belongs, but nope, there it is on the front taking up the space that God almighty intended the A button to use...
