Mobile phone manufacturer modu has unveiled its first modu jackets portfolio for the modu phone. These modu jackets will be commercially available beginning in the second quarter of this year as modu rolls out its mobile phone and ecosystem for the first time.
At the heart of the modu system is a tiny, modular mobile phone. In addition to complete mobile functionality, the modu phone is a music player and a mass storage device containing 2 GB of internal memory.
The modu phone presents a bold graphical user interface and a unique seven-key keypad to perform basic functions even without a modu jacket. For added functionality and style, users can easily slip the modu phone into a range of modu jackets.
The unveiling of the new modu phone and the new jackets is the first of several major announcements planned by the company around the 2009 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. These announcements cover global distribution of the modu phone and jackets; partnership agreements; new product news; and manufacturing and production capabilities.
In 2008 the company secured a total of $85 million in funding and opened offices in Western Europe, South Korea and, recently, Eastern Europe to handle growing needs around design, manufacturing and sales.
