PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Japanese telecom operator Willcom has unveiled the 'Phone Strap 2 WX06A' which is the world's smallest and lightest phone. The phone measures 32x70x10.7 mm and weighs a mere 32 grams, to put it in perspective the iPhone 5 measures 123.8x58.6x7.6 mm and weighs 112 grams which is almost 4 times heavier than the Phone Strap 2." Why does Japan always get all the cool stuff. I'd love me one of these. Kawaii ne?

Flip Phone

The best way to make a small phone with a readable display and usable buttons is a flip phone. I understand people wanting a small and light phone as I am such a person, but a one piece phone isn't a good way to do that. I am still using a flip phone phone that is several years old and I dread the day I have to replace it. I see people carrying around touch screen phones the size of a paperback novel and I am reminded of the bag phone I used in the early 90's. Not everyone wants to play games and surf the web with their phone. Some of us just want to make calls and send text messages. Bring back the Startac.
