World's smallest mobile phone spotted in UK
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...
Nah, it ain't...the Xun Chi 138 is still far smaller
Old, old news, this...got MP3, camera etc., too...
Though i did see a bluetooth headset-sized one a while back...(sorry, dont know name, or have link) I don't know if it was real or not; or available in the UK.
Still, can anyone better this...? Brain implant, maybe...?

How many situations can you get with the following:
A very small camera phone
Some hungry, mockney Koreans.
A nocturnal, semi-deserted car park, much like that infamous one near Hampstead Heath, but for this challenge a much more appropriate location between Plaistow & Dagenham (or at least, on the District Line).
Bonus points if you can add the following quote:

Title Is "smallest mobile" too big a claim?
"Smallest" seems to refer to frontal area only. My Nokia measures some 10.5 x 4.3 x 1.1cm (thick) for a volume of 49.6 cu cm. That means even less pocket-strain than the Elegance at 57.3 cu cm. OK, my Nokia is nearly half as heavy again, but the "size" claim here looks somewhat dubious I'd say.
What's the point of that? Are people's heads getting smaller? Is this distance from ear to mouth reducing through evolution, or is it targetted at kids?
