Don't like your phone's look? Then build your own
Dial It Yourself
If you don’t like your phone any longer, don’t just buy another one – build yourself a handset of your own. No, we’re not crazy - we’re talking about DIY phone assembly.
Designer Tzu-Fu Wang's Easy Tiles phone: don't give it to kids
Designer Tzu-Fu Wang has created a concept handset that’s based on the idea of faceplates made from sliding tiles. Although Wang’s Easy Tiles phone may not actually give you an entirely new handset each time, the design is a little more exciting than the interchangeable faceplates offered by Nokia and co.
The casing lets you slide interlocking plastic tiles around the faceplate to create any layout you want.
How the handset might slot together
Each user can have their own unique design. Wang hopes that printing companies will in due course offer tile-printing services so owners can have any image they want printed onto the phone’s titles.
Nothing's known about the handset's technical capabilities yet, although drawings appear to show that the phone has a modular construction - much like the Modu handset.
No plans to develop the Tile Phone past a concept have been slotted together yet.

Don't give up the day job
Tile phone....slotted together yet.
tut tut tut
Don't consider a career in comedy with a joke like that.
As for the concept it might appeal to a Rubik's cube fan or hippies but not to most phone user I don't think.
Well I like the idea, brings a bit of style to the normal boring "Grey" mobile market, be able to make the phone individual and personal to you, I will be interested to see if the idea makes it to market, but sadly I guess it will not as the boring "grey" brigade will kill it off.
