Unique mobiles [New Straits Time (Malaysia)]
(New Straits Time (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TO be bold is to be beautiful. Nicholas King takes a look at mobile phones with unconventional designs.
1. Pushing the boundaries of mobile phone innovation is more than just what's inside. N90 was a testament to its time when those words held true. Notably, its screen could be swiveled 270 degrees to allow for a more conventional video camera handling.
C99 Star Phone
2. Why waste time on personalising your phone with bling and glitter when you can actually hold a star in your hands? Made in China, the C99 turns a mobile phone into a star with a literal translation for those looking for something totally unique.
CEC F88 Wrist Phone
3. For as long as mobile phones have existed, the concept of "hands free" was never too far away. So China Electronics Corporation (CEC) created the F88, a wrist phone with a design that you would probably find in sci-fi shows like Power Rangers.
4. If watching YouTube on your mobile smartphone is possible, why not just turn it into a television? While the BPhone TV isn't the only TV phone in China, it does have a twistable 5-inch 800x480 screen with a full keyboard.
Golden Buddha Phone
5. This phone does exist. However, the golden clam-shell with a built-in virtual prayer room feature doesn't come cheap as it comprises a piece of jade, pearl powder lacquer and a glossy 24 carat gold coating which add up to a US$1,750 (RM5,537) price tag.
