Phone or Toy?

By: John Gray

Okay so we have seen mobile phones in pretty much all shapes and sizes so far: big ones, tiny ones, flip ones, ones that rotate open, touchscreen ones and 'lipstick' ones with no keypads! However, the latest release is a step in a whole different direction - as it is shaped like a toy car! No really it is!

So if you have children you might want to keep this news article away from them as it will probably result in "I want one of those!",

So the F1 phone is an actual working mobile phone that looks like it has been set into the underside of a toy car, which resembles a Ferrari, and when it is laid flat it does look like it is just a toy car.

The F1 mobile phone has the following features: a 2.2 inch touch sensitive colour display, 1.3 megapixel camera (which is quite cleverly set into the windscreen), music and video player, Memory card slot, USB, Stereo speakers, GPRS, and three pre-installed games - presumably these will be racing themed games.

Now I am not really sure who would be interested in a phone like this - besides Ferrari or car enthusiasts and five year old kids! It does have quite a reasonable price tag at less than ?100 sim free, but is appealing to a very niche market.
