John’s Phone

To this day – the Palm Treo, for all it’s flaws, was my favorite phone. The team that designed the phone UI – had experience actually making phone calls. Every phone I’ve had since – including my current one – I’m less confident of that.

Instead, I have a pocket-size computer that always promises to improve my every moment – with all sorts of ‘productivity tools’. When what it really wants to do is distract me from being productive. And compel me with how needy it is. Smart phone? – No. Needy phone? yes.

So, I’m always on the look out for bold devices eschewing complexity.

My favorite part:

“The back of the phone features a small opening with an address book and pen – two unique features you can use even when your phone is switched off.”

Unlocked & €70.

Brilliance in what’s missing.
