Another Chiquita-8110i on Ebay! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261788521200
A bit expensive though, and battery is dead... :D

Ha, first time hear for this "edition". If i only see the picture, i would think this is some non-original fake front panel :lol: .

There are fakes too, like this with "Danny" logo... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171688351916 Looks like real... but after a closer look it just isn't real. :D

As far as I know, these were part of Chiquita's marketing campaign. I still remember an advertisement on magazines in the end of 90's: it had a manipulated image of a banana cluster which had yellow 8110 phones instead of bananas, and a form where you filled your information and mailed it to Chiquita to possibly win one of those phones. Unfortunately I haven't seen the advertisement since those old days. :( Also companies customising phones for bosses isn't unusual.

Hi there.

My mother enter a competition just lik that and won one of the banana-painted Chiquita 8110. As she passed away a few weeks ago we found the old phone in here belongings. And as you say, the front panel and slider have been painted to make look lika a banana. It seems to work but battery is dead. I'm trying to find a new one ...
