Houston Community News >> Xun Chi 138, World Smallest Mobile Phone
1/26/2007-- At only 67 mm long and weighing in at 55 grams the Chinese Xun Chi 138 is about as big as your thumb and boasts at being the smallest mobile in the world. But it's not just a phone. Along with your standard ringing your mates function you also get to play with a camera, video player, MP3 player and all the usual games and extra bits you.
We have seen the race for the slimmest phone with entrants from Motorola, Samsung and NEC though the war still wages on, here we have the world's smallest phone and surely it is going to be there for quite some time. The Xun Chi 138 is a GSM with bar form factor. If you thought this was impressive I am sure you will be blown away when you check out what this baby packs inside. As with the tiny size it is impossible for a keypad so the Xun Chi 138 has touch screen with handwriting recognition and support for 260k colors. The manufacturer has still found space to squeeze in a 1.3 Mega pixel camera (actually VGA but interpolated to 1.3 Mega pixel), USB port, WAP, GPRS, MP3 player and 138 MB of onboard memory. Maybe the next model will have a Mini SD card slot and Bluetooth.
