Modu Phone to become a Collector’s Item?

According to a news report from BGR, Modu Ltd. (makers of Modu phone, the smallest cellphone in the world) will be shutting down operations next month.

We’ve had our chance to use the Modu phone before (see review here) and actually gave away a couple of them to our readers.


Globe Telecom exclusively introduced the Modu phone in the Philippines back in September 2009 (went for about Php6,000 on a prepaid kit).

With the death of the company, I think those Modu handsets will certainly become a collector’s item. Anybody out there still using one of them?

    My complaint against Cherry Mobile, Inbucks Enterprises (service center) and Berlein Electronics is currently under investigation at the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Nagpadala ka na rin ba ng iyong reklamo?

    Magpadala na complaint letter sa [email protected] para maasksyunan din nila ang reklamo mo.

    it’s a very handy 2nd phone, very small and light, it doesnt even look like a cellphone, madali lang din magtext. i thought they were coming out with a new line of modu phones na touch screen na.

    I really saw it as a flop from the moment I held it.
    i still have the unused unit!

    I got one MODU for my wife and she’s still using it. The unit broke already and got fixed, if it’ll break again, it will be an expensive paperweight :(
