With increasing use of the mobile phone, the competition among the handset manufacturers has tremendously increased, with each trying to out do the other with new innovations and offers! Here are Five Mobile Phones with Unique concepts that might appeal to the Techies in Manipal. Of course, with the MIT students being some of the best in the business, these might just inspire them to create some interesting innovations of their own! Who knows, The I-Mobile may be invented by one of the MIT students...
2. Wynncom Y45: What? What brand is this? If you think QWERTY is only made for office going entrepreneur hunks, give it a second thought. Wynncom, which entered the Indian markets fairly recently has come up with a QWERTY based mobile which can be used to type in Hindi. Wynncom Y45 is a dual sim phone comes powered with an application developed by 160by2.com enabling users to send free SMS to any mobile not only in India but also to UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines. So for all those students from Malaysia and the Middle east studying in Manipal, this might be a boon!
3. Vodafone VF247 Solar energy is not a new concept but its seamless integration in a handheld device will definitely serve billions of energy-starved rural masses. This was tried earlier by Samsung but failed due to very low output of 5 to 10 minutes of talk time for each hour of charging.
Vodafone VF247 charges full battery in 8 hours of plenty sunlight and can support more than eight days of use on standby and four hours of talk time. It also comes with an electronic charger, an FM radio and a powerful torch light.
5. Micromax Gravity GC700: Micromax Gravity has a unique design where you can hold the phone upside-down to shift from GSM to CDMA instantly. Obviously this cold not be the only reason to include this device in the least.
If you notice the design of mobile, it has a D-pad on both the sides with 5-way key and the phone also features accelerometer. Now I think this design if undergoes further R&D could easily be used to create a great gaming phone as it could provide an option to utilize the combination of D-pads and motion sensors to play the game. Biggies around should think about it.
