The single function cell phone concept
Following Times Online columnist Jeremy Clarkson's rant against phone manufacturers for not producing a phone that just makes calls:
Not one single mobile phone company in this vast and glorious world is offering a phone that is just that. A phone. A device that enables you to speak with someone a long way away.
"What I want is a mobile phone with a battery that lasts for more than six seconds. This means no colour screen. A colour screen uses more electricity than the Pentagon. I do not want it to take photographs. I do not want it to play music. I do not want to receive e-mails. I want it to be a telephone."
Dialaphone has come up with a simple phone concept, just for him.
