The ultimate mobile phone?

Does everything... and makes calls

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Mobile phones let us surf the web, send emails and, of course, make calls. But a spoof video shows how your talker could wash the dishes and inflate bicycle tires - even jump start your heart.

The Sumsing Turbo 3000 Xi Multitask was dreamed up by comedians The Groen Brothers. In their video, the mobile phone is used in dozens of fake, but hilarious, situations. For example, the clamshell talker is used to make a toasted sandwich and also used to heat a room. It’s also shown ironing clothes and being used as a facial razor.

It’s worth noting though that not all the situations that the phone’s used in are so far from reality. Earlier this year we reported how an inventor filed a patent for a mobile phone application that could enable your phone to become a “wireless communication device with integrated defibrillator” capable of delivering an electrical charge to someone’s heart.
