Is the Modu the Lightest (Cell Phone) of Them All?

It’s true—Crave reports that The Guinness World Records named the Modu phone as the lightest cell phone in the world.


The “half-a-phone,” which we reported on last month, weighs just 1.5 ounces and measures 2.8 by 1.4 by 0.3 inches.

If you recall, the Modu is a modular cell phone that can be placed into “jackets” that change the both the appearance and the functionality of the handset, the article said. The Modu itself has a few cell-phone-like features, such as a small display, a mini USB jack, and a couple of controls. It does work by itself, but the whole point is that Modu can sell you extra jackets that turn it into a full-size point-and-shoot camera, a messaging handset, and especially, different colors and fashions from the company’s “Spring Collection” and “Fall Collection.”
