Japanese carrier rebels against big phones, intros 'the world's smallest and lightest phone'
Japanese Willcom is a carrier you might not have heard of, but with its recent announcement of the “smallest and lightest phone,” the Phone Strap 2 WX06A, it definitely stands out, going against the current trend of bigger is better.

As you can tell by the name, the device is the sequel to the Phone Strap first-gen, and the second generation measures a tiny 32 x 70 x 10.7mm, and tips the scale at merely 32 grams.

The device has a 1-inch display and lasts for two hours of talk time, or 12 days on standby. The whole idea is to have it strap to your main phone as a backup device, though, so it is not exactly a standalone gadget. Needless to say, this will be a Japan exclusive.
