What SaY?

What SaY?

The SaY mobile phone was designed quite a while back but somehow the design looks still fresh and in sync with today’s needs. Right from the colors to the angles, the use of a rubberized body in contrasted with a slightly angled glossy keypad that fits perfectly in the talking position; everything is relevant to date. The camera and a pair of stereo speakers are arranged in a graphical and eye-catching fashion. Strikingly modern, yet rustic!

The Less is More Phone

The Less is More Phone

While the majority of modern smartphones focus on more, more, more to increase productivity, the CELs phone was developed from the belief that less distraction and “uni-tasking” rather than multitasking is the key to being productive. It focuses on just 4 basic functionalities: music, photography, fitness, and communication. What it lacks in apps (even internet!), it makes up for in a cool, quirky aesthetic and a straightforward, user-friendly interface!

The Simple Cellphone

The Simple Cellphone

Here is another vintage look at what cellphones can grow to become. Yes, transparent screens are a must and so is the passion for expansive displays. With Google Glasses and other such innovative tech coming around the bend, we have to pause and rethink our perception of communication. Maybe the future of phones will no longer be a candy bar or clamshells. What do you think?

More On The Curves

More On The Curves

Is there something more comforting about holding a phone in your hand that feels and looks curvy? Perhaps yes, and this is why phones like the VEGA, inspired by the design and innovation “brionvega”, demand so much attention. According to the designer, the display is curved for a better grip and use and the black and white OS is super cool. The color function is active only for the video – photo modes and the phone is crafted from polycarbonate.

A Silky Disposition

A Silky Disposition

You have to hand it to Samsung and Apple’s forward thinking design team that made it acceptable for us to have phones that are a cross between a tablet and well … a phone! While the new forms give us a gawky looking device, The Bionic Silkworm Inspired Phone takes us back to the basic shape of an ergonomic handset. Designed to make both children and the elderly comfortable with its use, the LED display and infrared sensor technology make it as tech-savvy as it gets. So which will you prefer… a phablet or a phone?
