Israeli company modu has just announced the official availability of its second modu handset, the modu T. It seems that company's touch phone has been awarded a Guinness World Record for being the lightest touch phone in the world.
Unfortunately, this is not an Android
smartphone, as rumors were pointing, instead the device is running Qualcomm's Brew operating system, with a special touch UI.
“We are pleased and proud to introduce today our brand new products. We have undergone a difficult time in which we have learned, innovated and grew stronger and I truly believe that we are on the right track to becoming a leading company in its field,” said Dov Moran, CEO and founder of modu.
The modu T
comes with a TFT 2.2-inch resistive touch screen with 65k colors support (240x320 pixels resolution), as well as accelerometer sensor.
It measures 76 x 46.5 x 11 mm and includes features such as web access, Instant Messaging, social networks integration, built-in FM radio
, GPS, and music player.
The phone is powered by a QSC6270 processor and features 2GB onboard storage and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
A few specifically crafted jackets are adding new functionalities to the phone, such as: camerafy, which adds a 5.0-megapixel camera; textify (available at the beginning of 2011), which adds a full QWERTY
keyboard that can be used for easily texting messages.
modu T includes a wide variety of applications such as: YouTube, Google Search, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, TuneWiki, eBuddy and Snaptu.
There's no information about the phone's price tag yet, but the company stated that the phone is expected to be launched soon in various countries.
The company also plans to launch in the near future its modu W
, Wi-Fi based device that will run on the Android operating system.
