Touchscreen-enabled Modu 2 coming to UK in 2010


Just several weeks after ,a href=http://www.gsmarena.com/modu_modular_phone_hits_the_shelves_at_long_last-news-1037.php>the official release of the first modular phone in the world - Modu - we got word on its successor. The most exciting bits about the Modu 2 are undoubtedly its touchscreen capabilities and the HSDPA support.

While the first Modu took almost two years to go from prototype stages to mass production, the Modu 2 promises to appear in much shorter time - we should be seeing it sometime next year. According to the source it will launch in UK, US, Japan as well as the continental part of Western Europe.

The manufacturer also promises a QWERTY jacket for the Modu 2 in case touchscreen input isn't your cup of tea. We are still taking those promises with a pinch of salt considering that only a tiny fraction of the promised jackets for the first Modu handset actually became available.

We hope that Modu learned their lesson, with the lukewarm reception of their handset being enough of a hint. The Modu has sold in merely 1000 units, which considering how hot the whole concept sounded when it was first demonstrated, is nothing short of a failure. It took it so long to hit the shelves that the initial hype faded out and with only three jackets currently available there's hardly much left to cheer for, really.
