In Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, one of the items Harry Mason has equipped is a phone (similar in design to an iPhone, without the touch screen feature. It also bears a resemblance to the LG Neon).
The phone takes the role of the radio from previous Silent Hill games by emitting static when an enemy is nearby and also has a map. It also has a battery life which reflects the battery life of the Wii Remote.
