    Call it bizarre or clever, but a US-based company Vaporcade is offering a smartphone that will allow you to make calls and text as well as smoke your favourite e-flavours - even help you quit smoking - tech website The Verge reported on Sunday.

    The Jupiter IO 3 is reportedly the world's first smokeable smartphone with a vape. A 3G smartphone that costs $299, it runs on Android KitKat 4.4 operating system. The smartphone has two batteries - one to power the phone and one to power the vape.

    The battery life is shared so if you do not vape much, you will get a longer battery life. The smartphone has an opening under a little plastic cover off the top. Attach a flavoured liquid cartridge and a mouthpiece to that and smoke right out of your smartphone.

    It comes with a button to regulate the heat and get a stronger pull. The liquid cartridges cost $15 and come in flavours like mint, peach and coffee and each one provides about 800 puffs, or four packs of cigarettes.

    Moreover, the Vaporcade app on the phone lets the user track battery life, how much liquid is left, what flavour has been loaded in the cartridge, and how many puffs the user has taken over time. It also helps in quitting smoking or cut down on your vaping by setting a goal.

    The app alerts when the user crosses the number of puffs. Claimed to be approved by the US Federal Communications Commission, the information on health effects and the impact of vaping from the device, when compared to traditional cigarettes, is still not known. The company, that makes e-cigarettes, cigars, and coffee beans, plans to release a 4G model for $499 in the next few months.
