World's smallest mobile phone spotted in UK

Boost IT visibility and business value

The handset held to be the world's smallest is now available in the UK. Made by China's Haier and dubbed the Elegance, the 9.1 x 3.5 x 1.8cm, 64g micro-phone packs in a tri-band GSM cellular link, an FM radio and an MP3 player.

In fact, you'd easily mistake its curvy shiny black casing for a digital music player. The Elegance sports a 1.1in, 96 x 96 OLED screen and 128MB of on-board memory - expandable using Micro SD cards.

The built-in battery is surely tiny, but still manages to offer up to three hours' talk time. It comes equipped with Bluetooth 1.2 and wireless stereo support.

The SIM-free Elegance will set you back £165 from UK supplier UnlockedMobiles.com, which is expecting new stock today, according to its website. "Pre-order now for guaranteed itemisation," it suggests, whatever "itemisation" means... Help, help, I'm being itemised...
