As everyone’s coming out with phablets, Japan launches world’s smallest, lightest smartphone

New technology is more gadget then functional device, but still cool to see

Phablet’s been the buzz word for mobile manufacturers of late. That’s probably because they’ve been having a lot of difficulty honing in on what the market wants – do they want a phone-sized device or something more substantial like a tablet. The result – phablets.

Phablets

Japanese-based Willcom made a statement last week and said that they weren’t going to be part of the next big trend when they unveiled the “Phone Strap 2 WX06A” – the world’s smallest, lightest smartphone ever created.

Actual size of Phone Strap phone

The Phone Strap 2 WX06A measures just 32 x 70 x 10.7 mm and weighs a svelte 32 grams. Granted, something like this is more toy / gadget than usable device, but the crazy thing is that it actually works and functions like a smartphone! Text-based email is perfectly legible on the one-inch display, and the phone even comes with an onboard infrared sensor. One charge will power the Phone Strap 2 WX06A’s battery for two hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby.
