Everything you wanted to know about the 'modu T'

modu t jacketsModu Mobile, an Israeli cellphone manufacturer, took the industry by storm in 2009 when it showcased the world’s first modular phone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The concept was powerful – a tiny device that could function on its own as a cellphone but could morph into different roles when it was inserted into specially built jackets. However, modu phones never really took off and the modu T is essentially the company’s second innings. It has been recognised as the world’s lightest 3.5G touch phone by the Guinness Book of World Records. Here’s a list of everything you wanted to know about this mysterious phone, which will be launched in India.


The concept still remains the same – the main phone unit aka modu and an array of jackets.


The only thing that seems to have changed is that it now runs on Qualcomm’s BREW platform and has a range of applications like Facebook, Snaptu, YouTube, eBuddy, TuneWiki among others preinstalled.


Apart from apps, a key to modu is the jacket. Depending on the jacket the device can transform itself into a camera phone or a music phone or even a text messaging/e-mailing/chatting phone.


Micromax will announce the modu T tomorrow. The phone is expected to retail at Rs 9,999 and is likely to come bundled with two jackets.

UPDATE: The official price of the modu T is Rs 12,500 and will be available with Aircel.
