Weird Looking Phones | Top 10 Most Weird Phones: Mobile Phones are an everyday necessity in the day to day life. Many new models are released each and every year. Here we are with ten most weird looking phones ever made in the history:
10. Motorola V70 (2002) – Weird Looking Phones:
15 years back when this phone was launched for about $400 with facilities like GPRS support and 360° rotatable keypads, people thought it is an innovative design. But as you might’ve guessed, that plan didn’t last long, instead of registered its name as one of the most weirdly designed phones in history.
9. Nokia 7600 (2003):
This strange looking phone surprisingly aimed at the “fashion” market, it had a different teardrop shape, and a different variety of interchangeable covers were available. The number keys are located around the screen. The VGA camera was of excellent quality for its time, but poor by the modern standards. The keys made the typing and dialing quite awkward.
8. Nokia N-Gage (2003):
Nokia again with a poorly designed phone targeted to gamers, and lure them away from the Game Boy Advance by including cell phone functionality in a handheld device. N-Gage was an instant failure, partly because of the buttons, designed for a phone, were not well-suited for gaming, neither it had proper design to be used as a phone, hence making it one of the most weirdly designed phones ever.
7. Samsung Serene (2005) – Weird Looking Phones:
Samsung Serene with a circular keyboard was produced as a joint venture between Samsung electronic, Bang & Olufsen, a company famous for its indulgence products. Although it wasn’t precisely a bad looking phone, this $1275 product sure is quite weird looking to be used a phone.
6. Nokia 7280 (2004):
The last entry from the former heavyweight mobile manufacturer Nokia. As part of Nokia’s “Fashion Phone” line, it has black, white and red styling and a screen that fades to a mirror when inactive. Although the design was able to generate hype in the fashion world, today can be considered one of the most strange looking phones ever made in the history.
5. BlackBerry Passport (2014):
BlackBerry Passport was a mere attempt to serve new wine in old bottle. It is principally made for people looking to buy old school BlackBerry phone with the latest hardware specifications. BlackBerry triumphantly pulled off that challenge with this different phone. However, it is the weirdest looking smartphone today available in the market.
4. Samsung Juke (2007):
As the name suggests, the phone mainly targeted the music lovers. It has support for wide variety of music formats, and 2GB storage for the music alone. But the most impressive part of it has to be the device, which is both unique and looks weird. It has the functionality to rotate the display which exposes the keypad. For its time it was a genuine attempt to meet the needs of music lovers but failed in its hard design.
3. Monohm Runcible (2015):
The premise is to develop a mobile phone that resembles centuries old pocket watches. This circularly shaped phone has a display in front, a camera on the back and other necessary features for today’s consumers. The smartphone sure does look unique and beautiful, but can also be considered one of the wackiest phone of all time.
2. Haier P7 Pen Phone (2004):
Is there anyone who wants a phone that has the capabilities of writing on paper? There you have it, the Haier pen phone. This pen is a little bit different than others because, it can be used to make calls, send texts and do anything that a standard mobile phone does. Haier P7 Pen Phone may not he the most satisfied phone ever made, but surely is one of the most peculiar ones.
1. The Golden Buddha Phone (2009):
This wacky phone is one of the most expensive phones developed in China. It sports a piece of real jade, pearl powder lacquer and a 24 karat gold plating that makes it the most expensive cell phone in China, at 1,750 dollars, though we’re still unsure who would want that amount of money for this weirdest product. This divine phone wins the race of being the unique, most bizarre and perhaps the most useless phone ever made.
The above are the weirdest looking phones ever made.
