The world’s smallest phone sounds like a weird headline, right? Just be thankful we didn’t lead with “Is this a phone for ants??”
Only 90’s kids might remember this, but the mobile arena wasn’t always all about the biggest screen size, quite the opposite. In the early days of cellphones, companies competed to have the smallest possible phone.
Decades later, the Zanco tiny t1, a possible homage to the early days of cellphones, is making ripples on Kickstarter by winning, very late, the race for the world’s smallest phone. This teeny tiny device is fully functional and measures just 46,7 x 21 x 12 mm.
It weighs an astonishing 13 grams, which is even more impressive if you consider the fact that it features a fully functional keyboard.
The complete specs seemed ripped from the 90’s as well, the Zanco tiny t1 bragging about MIDI sound tones and a phone book memory of 300 contacts.
Want to know the resolution? Grab a magnifying glass to stare at this beautiful 0.49 inch OLED screen with 64 x 32 px resolution.
The Zanco tiny t1 uses a Nano Sim and charges via Micro USB, the 200 mAh promising an autonomy of 3 days standby and 180 minutes talk time.
This cuteness can be yours for $47 with the smallest pledge featuring a reward. If you want to stock up for next Christmas, a $234 pledge gets you 5 of the world’s smallest phones.
