3GSM 2006: The Mickey Mouse mobile

Mobile phones

I’m not sure if I like the idea of grown men and women with Mickey Mouse mobiles – it might get a giggle on first glance, but it can only diminish your standing in polite company over time. But if you’ve got a Disney obsession or you want a kiddie phone for your child (yeah, right), well now you’ve got the chance with the limited addition Dmobo M900.

I can’t say I’m too familiar with Dmobo, but the phone spec is reasonable without being much more – it’s a tri-band GSM phone with 1.3MP camera and 260k colour screen. But you’ll not be buying for that, you’ll want the Mickey head buttons on the front, the metallic Mickey cut outs and the "luxurious and soft feeling of Mickey Magic Leather". How can you resist?

The phone is currently widely available in Asia. No details of price or release date for the UK as yet.
