    Modu Releases Teeny-Tiny T Phone

    Remember Modu? A few years ago these guys took MWC by storm, promising a tiny phone that fit into different sleeves that offered various functions like game playing and movie playback. Why not have one phone that’s good at all of those and didn’t use the sleeves? We still don’t know, but Modu is still kicking and they just released the Modu T. The T is a Java-powered 3G… Read More

Modu received a $100 million cash infusion last week. The phone, as you’ll remember, works as a standalone mobile device or fits into different “jackets” that… Read More

  • Modu: Cool but flawed

    [photopress:scaled.IMG_1205.JPG,full,pp_image]
    I was pretty down on Modu, which is essentially a module-based GSM system that consists of a tiny handset — no bigger than a business card and about a quarter-inch thick — and a bunch of “mates” or “jackets” that wrap around the phone to do different things. Now that I’ve seen it up close and talked to… Read More

  • Interview with Dov Moran, founder of Modu

    http://flixwagon.com/flvPlayer.swf We just got out of an interview with Dov Moran, founder of Modu. As we suspected, the device is a module-based GSM system that includes a small, fully-functional phone and a set of “mates” or “jackets.” You can pop the phone in and out of different devices and add GSM functionality to almost anything, from GPS units to cameras.

  • Modu: Vaporware bull or viral jackanapes? You decide!

    Feel free to call me cynical but I’ve seen this video a thousand times — remember Origami? — and the concept of a take-it-with you ID built-in to various CE devices like phones and apparently GPS receivers is compelling but almost impossible in reality. Look for more info at DEMO next week but I’m calling bullshit. via TC Read More
