We’ve already covered the world’s smallest smartphone, so how about the world’s smallest mobile? That title undoubtedly goes to the newly-discovered Xun Chi 138 – which, as you can see, is about the size of an AA battery.
Whether you want a phone this small (and thus, so easy to lose) is open to question, but if you do fancy a handset you can slip into the coin pocket of your jeans, you’ll be pleased to know that this model packs in most of the basics. There’s an MP3 player, USB connectivity, 121MB of storage and a camera (probably VGA) on the GPRS handset. There’s no keyboard, but that’s replaced by a touch sensitive display with handwriting recognition.
The Xun Chi 138 is unlikely to make it to the UK, but it is a great example of miniaturisation today – if we really wanted phones this small.
