John’s Phone: the world’s most basic mobile phone?
Dutch company John Doe has unveiled what it claims is the simplest mobile phone in the world.
‘John’s Phone’ has no display, no ability to send texts, and its contacts book is simply a pen and paper concealed under a flap at the back of the handset.
Other than setting-up 10 speed dial numbers, all you can do is make a voice call and hang-up, making this a dumb phone of epically dumb proportions.
On the plus side, the makers of John’s Phone say its battery will last three weeks on a single charge.
‘At a time when there is an abundance of choices and oppressive channels, we wanted to develop a simple gadget. It is also a useful phone while travelling, exercising or weekend sailing,’ said the phone’s designer Diedriekje Bok.
John’s Phone will set you back around £59 and is available on the John Doe website.
