World’s lightest smartphone to hit India via Micromax

Jerusalem: The world’s lightest smartphone, weighing just 60 grams, is all set to hit the Indian market to make the most of the ongoing festive season.

Israeli entrepreneur Dov Moran’s company Modu, which launched tiny smartphone Modu T last week, has announced striking a partnership with India’s third largest distribution company Micromax for the venture, business portal Calcalist reported.

The value of the deal between the two companies has not been disclosed yet because it is dependent on phone sales, the report said.

Micromax will sell the cellular phone as part of a package that includes two “jackets", which are add-on sets for the Modu, at Rs12,500 ($282).

The Modu T is a 3.5 generation smartphone with a 2.2 inch touch screen and has Qualcomm’s Brew operating system and an array of Java-based applications, including Snaptu, Facebook, Flickr and media player TuneWiki.

Weighing at only 60 grams and measuring 7.5 cms, it is considered the lightest smartphone in the world.
