Mobile phones to order
12th Feb 2008
I've been dreaming about this kind of service for ages: customised mobile phones. Well there's an interesting article over at Springwise about this very thing. They refer to a US startup called Bug Labs, who've taken a leaf out of the web mash-up book and started producing mobile devices made up of various hardware modules that snap together like building blocks. A great idea in theory, but it's not really what I'm after.
(For your information - I'd really like a mobile phone with a web browser... and that's it. As long as I can connect to the internet wirelessly that's all I need in my ideal mobile device. Most mobile devices these days are totally over-the-top in terms of features, far too many).
So maybe ZZZPhone have the answer. They offer a mobile device built to my specific requirements. Hmm...
UPDATE: Just found this related link: modu is an Israeli company who claim to have made the smallest, lightest mobile phone in the world; allowing you to plug-in whatever feature or funtionality you need:
- jackets (which are fancy looking covers)
- a camera
- a GPS
- a larger screen
- or connect it to other device
The examples look amazing.
