It’s called Light Phone and it looks like it will be really easy to use – you can only use it to make and receive calls. No messaging, no camera, no facebook.
It’ll be about the size of a credit card (2” X 3” X 1/8”, 1.3 oz) and will use a dot-matrix LED display. It’s a pre-paid phone, preloaded with minutes so it might be useful as an emergency phone (20 days on standby) or a child’s first phone. You can also connect it to your existing phone (though I'm not sure exactly why you would want to do this... maybe to reduce the distractions associated with a smartphone?) Its only concession to modern phones is a 10 number speed-dial.
It looks similar to John’s Phone, launched a couple of years ago, but maybe a little cheaper.
It’s currently in Kickstarter funding, expected to ship in 2016 for about $100.
Would you find value in a phone like this?
