Guiness World Records: Modu is Lightest Phone Ever

modu.jpgModu, which recently raised $100 million, has just been named the world’s lightest mobile phone by the Guiness Book of World Records: It weighs 40.1g (1.41 oz.) and its dimensions are 72.1 mm (2.8 inches) x 37.6 mm (1.4 inches) x 7.8 mm (0.3 inches).

Throughout Modu’s design process the emphasis has been on keeping the phone small, light and compact, according to the press release, so that it can be slipped into the various “jackets” it is intended for. Despite being miniature and minimalist, the phone still offers all the functions and capabilities of a normal-sized handset.

Zack Weisfeld, VP Marketing, said: “The Guinness World Record is a great achievement for a team that has worked tirelessly to take Modu from the drawing board to producing full working devices in less than a year. From the outset, Modu’s tiny dimensions and super light weight have been fundamental to delivering the disruptive, modular communication concept that Modu embodies.

“With Modu, the mobile phone can now be added to the list of ‘invisible’ items that people carry with them wherever they go, such as a bunch of keys, their wallet and their watch.”
