Modu unveils new jackets

At GSMA World Congress in Barcelona, Modu shows off four new jackets for its modular cell phone.

You remember Modu? That's the Israeli company that makes the tiny modular cell phone that we first saw at last year's GSMA World Congress. The concept is simple: insert the Modu into one of several "jackets" and it becomes a fully functional phone with real controls. Each jacket, which is really just a handset shell, will bring a different design and feature set. You can change them at will to match your mood and needs.

Well, just to show you that's it's really not vaporware, the company will be showing four new jackets next week in Barcelona. Each offers a different design theme and varying features. Follow along in our Modu slide show to see the new jackets in all their glory.
