In the days where smartphones are getting bigger than our palm sizes, Clubit New Media in collaboration with Zanco released Zanco Tiny t1, the world’s smallest phone which is literally smaller than the average human thumb.
Zanco Tiny t1, released as a part of the kickstart campaign mesures 46.7 mm x 21 mm x 12 mm and weighs merely 13 g. The UK-based company called the device as a backup phone which would be helpful for people who are walkers, cyclists, joggers, and others usually engaging in sporting activities for calling and texting.
“The creation of the Zanco Tiny T1 was motivated purely by the challenge of whether or not it was possible to create a phone so small,” Robert Lattibeaudiere, operations manager at creators Clubit New Media, told Digital Trends. “In the immortal words of Jeff Goldblum, ‘We spent so long figuring out if we could, we never stopped to ask if we should.’”
