Tuesday saw Japan’s largest mobile phone provider, NTT Docomo, unveil what the company is claiming to be the world’s smallest internet-capable mobile phone. The 1.9 cm thick Premini, is a measly 9 cm long and 3.9 cm wide. And weighs in at a waif-like 69g. This new model is said to be aimed at males in their 20’s and 30’s, who want a phone with just the minimum of functions. With minimum possibly meaning everything except a camera!
Whilst the last few years have seen mobile phones increase in size to accommodate their ever expanding range of functions, recently a few basic models similar to the Premini have been released. What they lack in functions, they make up for in size and coolness. Like AU’s decidedly stylish infobar phone.
