TECH: Call for ban on sale of smallest mobile phones

2017 3G World’s Smallest Mini Waterproof Android Phone Dual SIM Bluetooth WIFI | eBay


THE world’s smallest mobile phone is slightly bigger than a coin. Zanco Tiny T1 measures 46.7mm x 21mm x 12mm, and it weighs just 13kg.

Tiny T1 fits in a nano SIM card and has space for 300 contacts, 50 SMS messages and 50 last calls in or out records, as well as a keyboard.

Funded through Kickstarter, the Tiny T1 will sell for as low as £30 (RM163) for “early bird” investors.

Barely days after it was released on the Internet, the Justice Secretary of UK has called for a ban on its sale as it could be used to flout prison security measures.

The Mail Online today reported that David Lidington wants online retailers to stop selling the gadgets, which are no bigger than a cigarette lighter.

Officials said the mini phones are freely available on the internet and are designed to go undetected by body orifice security scanners that are in place in jails around England and Wales, the report said.

Waterproof Android Phone

Introducing this ultra small and light Android phone, this is currently the world’s smallest water resistant Android phone. Due to its compact size, this phone can be easily slipped into your pocket, your bag and even a purse. Not much bigger than your finger, this phone only measures about 90mm tall and best of all, comes with an IP53 water resistant rating. With an IP53 water resistant rating, any splashes of water will not harm this phone in the slightest way and dust won’t be able to ingress. In addition to all this and the fact it comes with an Android operating system, this phone offers a real advantage over other mini phones on the market.

Small But Practical

A 1GHz CPU is housed inside this phone, together with a rear camera, Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi too. Install apps on this nano phone, surf the web, read emails, play games and so much more you can do. Also a micro SD card can be inserted to expand the existing internal memory and two SIM cards can be used together in this mini phone. Due to the dual SIM feature, all your contacts will stay centralized on one phone while you will be reachable on two separate mobile numbers.
