Nokia 3250: take a turn!
Model design is unusual, for the first time someone ventured to place the keypad on a rotating block. This Nokia phone model was designed as a device for listening to the music for those who are lazy to wear a mp3-player.
The unit turns on one hinge, the mount is safe and does not cause any issues. The block is well-fixed in each position, you rotate it and you hear a click. In a compact bag the phone cannot “open” independently, there is no space for that.
You can rotate the unit at 90 degrees and at 270, in these cases the camera automatically turns on, and the screen acts as a viewfinder. Camera control, among other things, can be hold using music keys located on the block. In this case, you are holding the main part with one hand and with another hand you can shoot, or remote the picture.
sWaP Nova: little chips light great fires!
The smallest mobile phone – this champion even got into the Guinness Book of records!
The phone is so small that it can be used as a pendant. The device weighs only 43 grams, and its size is smaller than a credit card, which does not affect functionality.
swap Nova is equipped with a touch screen, built-in device for reading books and operating system that supports 8 languages. Thanks to a special module, the phone can turn into a regular flash drive, running from the USB port.
Smells like… Hyundai MP 280!
Fantasy of mobile phones designers does not stand still: Hyundai has unveiled the MP 280 in the “shell” form that produces a perfume fragrance whenever the user opens it. According to the source, 2 drops of concentrated composition is enough for about 8 hours of work.
When the perfume finishes, you can refuel it using a special syringe, which is in a set. However, this mobile phone is not cheap, its price is $ 1200.
We?re not done yet, believe us!
