The Modu, which has been dubbed the world's lightest cell phone, has found a new market in the United Kingdom.

It's not clear whether or not the Modu will be headed to a specific wireless provider yet, but Purely Gadgets will be selling it for the limited time price of £129.99 ($198) with £30 ($46) off a modu jacket when bought simultaneously.

While the cost doesn't seem worth it for such a simple phone, here's a glimpse at what this ultra-small mobile device includes:

  • 1.3-inch OLED color display
  • Up to 2GB of memory
  • Built-in speaker
  • Music player

Tiny gadgets always seem to be popular, at least in theory thanks to spy movies and James Bond. But I can't imagine actually operating something that small. I feel like it would just be frustrating to dial a number with those miniscule keys and read anything that extremely petite display.
