It's been over a year since we first saw the Modu mobile phone, but the company announced on Sunday that its product will finally go on sale. Modu's home country of Israel will be the first to get the product, with additional releases coming later this year in Europe, South America and Southeast Asia.
Starting on Wednesday, Cellcom Israel will offer a limited quantity of Modu phones, with a full release slated for later this year. The introductory Modu kit will cost about 500 Israeli shekels (£80).
Modu offers a unique product that combines a tiny mobile phone with a selection of 'jackets' that change the phone's appearance and feature set. It's an interesting concept and we're glad to see it finally seeing the light of day. Modu showed additional jackets last February at Mobile World Congress 2009, including a music jacket that features JBL speakers.
