The more I’ve thought about Modu, the modular cellular handset that launches on October 1 with carriers in Russia, Italy, and Israel, the more intrigued I become.
Called a glorified SIM card by some, Modu offers the basics of a cell phone (calls, texting, contacts), with the expandability to power an array of electronic devices. Based around a concept of “jackets,” you’ll be able to dock Modu into specially designed gadgets. From GPS devices to digital cameras, the options appear endless.If you’re just looking for a teeny tiny phone, the Modu fits the bill – with a bonus. Using the same “jacket” model, the look of the phone can be completely changed.
Modu has already connected with industry players Blaupunkt, Universal Music, and SanDisk, meaning that there are definitely a fair share of people out there who believe in the product.
I’d love to get my hands on one of these. Thank God they left out the wi-fi, or I’d have to consider a move overseas.
