The world's smallest smartphone?

Mobile phones

Malaysian phone manufacturer Fifth Media has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s smallest Windows Mobile 5 smartphone. Measuring 11.3 x 4.9cm and just 2.1cm thick, it manages to pack in quad-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE connectivity, along with Bluetooth 1.2 and 802.11b Wi-Fi.

The Axia 308 will feature a 416MHz Intel PXA272 processor, 128MB of Flash ROM and 64MB of RAM, with a MiniSD slot to boost storage. It’s got a 2.2in, 240 x 320, 262,144-colour display and a fixed-focus 1.3 megapixel camera. It also contains a 1500mAh battery, providing up to four hours’ talk time and 120 hours in stand-by.

The aim is to sell the phone outside Malaysia, so expect to see it at the CeBIT show in Hanover next month, when hopefully we’ll get more concrete details about the possibility of the phone reaching the UK and a price for it.
