evaphone2Fans looking to get one of the Hideaki Anno designed NERV cellphones may be out of luck — the limited edition phone sold all 20,000 units in just five hours of it being offered for pre-order.

The phone, which features a NERV inteface and logo on the outside among many Evangelion tie-ins, will be featured in the upcoming film Evangelion 2.0: You Can (not) Advance.

While pre-orders for the 90,000 yen phone (about $900) are finished, another 10,000 units will be sold in stores, also likely to be sold out fast.
