Modu, the lightest mobile phone in the world, will be launched in Romania in mid February in Vodafone stores.
The phone has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for its size: it is 37 millimeters wide and 72 millimeters long. It has a memory of 2 GB, a keyboard of just seven keys, OLED screen and micro USB. It was made by Modu, a company that was founded in 2007 by Dov Moran, the investor of the USB stick.
The device will be distributed in Romania by TDT distribution. “Romania is the first European country where Modu is being launched. Over the course of this year we will launch it on other Eastern European markets,” said Moran.
The price of the handset in Romania is not yet known but in other countries it retails at around USD 100.
