New Apple phone has full QWERTY keyboard

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Okay, so it’s not exactly what most people have in mind when they think of an Apple phone, but you got to give the designers some creativity points. Either that or fire them immediately. On the inside, things don’t fare much better. The specifications mention a whopping 145KB of internal memory and a 2.2″ QVGA screen with a resolution of 640×480, which is impossible, because QVGA is 320×240. If you still can’t resist buying one, you can grab it from Focalprice for $86.11/€68.83, where it’s also available in beautiful pink and green.

World cup football phone won’t win any prizes

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

There are only a few days left until the world’s biggest sport event breaks loose: the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. All markets are already flooded with merchandising, but now we also have this beautifully designed football shaped phone from FocalPrice for $91.56/€75.32. The chances of me ordering this phone are about as big as those of Holland winning the world cup: we never won that one. GO HOLLAND!

Cigarette lighter cellphone… I always needed that.

Thursday, February 4th, 2010


Some people say that China doesn’t innovate and only steals ideas, but have you ever seen cellphone with a built-in cigarette lighter before? I hope not. Besides the lighter, the Machismo lacks any other killer features. It’s still one of those dime a dozen triband mehh-phones, with a low res screen and a VGA camera. I also wonder if a built-in lighter increases the chance of your cellphone exploding. Oh well, health risks don’t seem to bother smokers anyway. Get the Machismo for $68.51/€49.68 at Chinavasion.
