Modu on Tuesday touted its Guinness World Record forthe lightest mobile phone--weighing in at 1.41 ounces--but is that a reason to buy it?
The question is largely academic since modu--an Israeli company founded by Dov Moran, who sold msystems to SanDisk--launched just a month ago. However, how important is it to have the lightest phone (gallery right)?
Given the need to surf the Web and get a good data experience, I reckon that being lightweight isn't the most important quality. Of course, you don't want to lug around a brick, but you're not going to sweat a few ounces here and there.
Bottom line: modu is worth watching even if today's Guinness World Record spiel isn't going to drive sales.
