The Guinness Book of Records is full of milestones, some smaller than others, and some more absurd than others. Of brands that beat for the mere pleasure of beating them and that remain there until someone arrives and surpasses them, passing the previous ones to oblivion. The mobile world does not escape. We have the most expensive mobiles, the cheapest, the thinnest and the biggest screen and now we have here the smallest mobile phone in the world.
One that, like the aforementioned records, has been designed and built for the sheer pleasure of knowing if it could be done and it has been done. It is the Tiny T1 Stilt, a phone with such an unattractive name that it seems to go hand in hand with the difficulty of its handling. A mobile with a physical keyboard, so that we do not miss it even if it is complex to type in it.
13 grams and 200 mAh battery
You have to put things in place, we are not talking about a smartphone but a feature phone, which we used to call mobile phones before knowing that they could be much more. A phone that for now is a propotype but fully functional and looking for funding, of course, on Kickstarter. Mind you, he already has 17,000 of the 25,000 pounds he needs to get ahead, and there’s still a month left when we write this article.
The Tiny T1 Stilt only weighs 13 grams and is somewhat larger than two one pound coins. We are talking about a phone that only measures 46.7 millimeters high and 21 millimeters wide. Enough measures to have encastrado a screen OLED of 64 x 32 pixels and 12,5 millimeters in which to read who calls us or the messages. Because we have an agenda, up to 300 numbers, and we can store up to 50 SMS.
As we said, the phone is, in addition to the smallest in the world, fully functional. We have a slot for nanoSIM, we have a microphone, we have a speaker and we have a microUSB port to be able to connect it to the current and charge its 200 mAh battery. And of course, as a small mobile can get lost we can hold a lanyard or tape to carry it hanging.
Yes, forget to use your small screen to surf the Internet because it only has 2G connectivity. No doubt a curiosity more than interesting and a project to follow closely because, as we said, is not far from achieving its goal. The Tiny T1 Stilt, the smallest phone in the world until another one that is even smaller arrives. If he succeeds, the thing is really complicated.
