The Guinness World RecordTM for the world’s lightest mobile phone has been awarded to Modu for its tiny and sophisticated mobile phone.
Modu was awarded this prestigious honour after careful consideration by the Guinness World RecordsTM judges, who declared that: “The lightest mobile phone is the modu, which weighs 40.1 g (1.41 oz).” Guinness World Records added: “modu’s dimensions are 72.1 mm (2.8 inches) x 37.6 mm (1.4 inches) x 7.8 mm (0.3 inches).”
The Modu Mobile phone is the first modular cell phone which allows it to be so small. You can slip it into various Modu jackets and Modu Mates which allow additional functionnalities and an entirely new user experience. Although it is the lightest in the world, the Modu still has all the standard functions of any standard mobile phone and is very easy to use.
I personally find that small gadgets like these do offer some enhanced portability options because of their size and weight, but with the “small and sexy” comes the “fragile and easy to lose”. I haven’t had one in my hands(yet) so I can’t say for sure, but I’d probably be a little worried about easily breaking it during normal use.
