Modu Phone Review
You don’t need to spend a lot of time with the Modu phone to realize if it’s for you or not. I guess it all boils down to how it fits with your lifestyle.
The first time I saw the Modu, I was a bit confused how one could comfortably use this phone with that very sparse physical keys.
Turns out the phone gives you a virtual alphanumeric keypad for typing a message (reminds me of the virtual keyboard of PSP, only the Modu has alphanumeric).
While most phones in the marketÂ battle it out to be your primary mobile handset, the Modu phone is alone for the #2 spot. In the Philippines, a significant chunk of mobile users have a second phone which they use for simple but specific purpose — second phone could be the office phone for business and client contacts; or is reserved for a specific person or a small personal group of contacts.
The Modu is perfect for that — making calls and sending SMS. Instead of getting a bigger, heavier or more expensive secondary phone, the Modu gets it done and doesn’t add much weight on your pocket.
Of course, if you want to add some variety, they also come with numerous add-on cases or jackets. Just slip it in a jacket and the phone is completely transformed into a new one. Check out some of these colorful jackets for the Modu.
It’s like the Nokia 1100, only way more fashion-friendly. And did I mention it’s the world’s lightest mobile phone? It’s also the slimmest at just 7.8mm thin. At the very least, it’s a conversation piece.
The Modu phone is by no means not your regular feature phone but rather a fashion phone. So it’s either you like it or you don’t. I just happen to like it.
