What fast-food chain has broken into the smartphone-making business?

Answer: KFC

In partnership with information and communications technology solutions provider Huawei, KFC (known pre-1991 as Kentucky Fried Chicken) began selling its Colonel Sanders-branded smartphone in China earlier this month. The reason? To celebrate 30 years of selling its fried chicken in the country.

The limited-release Android smartphone (only 5,000 were made) has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a microSD card slot inside a 5.5-inch frame, according to SiliconBeat, which also reports that a KFC music app les users share songs with the 4,000 KFC stores in China. The phone was sold for US$125.
