Guinness Book of World Records Names World's Lightest Mobile Phone
(Mobile) - When you read through the Guinness Book of World Records, you find a lot of totally weird things. You see pictures of the person with the world's longest fingernails, for example. While not quite as outrageous, the Modu mini phone has also found its way into the Guinness Book of World Records, getting named the lightest mobile phone in the world.
As you recall, we saw the Modu mini phone earlier this year. The main module is all you need for basic phone functionality, but this central unit can then be shoved into a series of different jackets that provide extra functionality, like making it into a mobile gamer, mobile music listener, or even a smartphone.
The standalone mobile device weighs in at a barely-there 1.4 ounces and is 0.3-inches thick. If you didn't know any better, it's pretty easy to mistake the Modu mini phone for a car remote or something. Look for the Modu to hit the States either late this year or early next year.
