Default World's smallest Cellphone

The Guinness World Records named the Modu phone as the lightest cell phone in the world. At just 1.5 ounces and 2.8 by 1.4 by 0.3 inches, the Modu is as tiny as it gets.

On its own, the Modu phone might not have a standard keypad, but it will still make calls. Put it into a ’sleeve’ or ‘jacket’ (which are essentially cases) and you can turn it into a multitude of different devices.

If, for example, you’re going out clubbing, you can pop it into a fashion sleeve with a fancy design. If you’re on a business trip and you need a phone with a Qwerty keypad and large screen, you just have to pop it into a ‘jacket’ with those features.

The idea is that when you buy the Modu phone, you’ll get a range of two or three sleeves with it and therefore you’re essentially getting three phones for the price of one.

Its actually an amazing concept. A modular mobile for which one can buy shells or "jackets" later (which are not exactly bare shells, and can transform the mobile functionality completely)
modu - make new connections

Neonode is currently the smallest windows mobile phone. The one portrayed above is yet to be released. I have played with neonode N2. Check out crfmall n2 on youtube.

Jesal you got your answer. Thanks Devarshi84.

I saw this cell at the speed run and one of the bhpians had it. I cant remember who it was. Thats Sam's hand you see it in. I held it in my hand and could not help pressing two or three buttons at a time when trying to press one.

I havent got rave reviews from customers for that piece. haier is still not a mobile phone player. I would suggest to stay away.
