Modu and JBL show off music jacket

Designed with JBL, the Modu Music jacket turns the tiny phone into a music player.

Just what is that thing? Modu

On the second day of the GSMA World Congress, Modu added to the gallery of jackets it released last week by unveiling a new music jacket with JBL. Called the Modu Music Jacket (the company really has a way with clever names), it's designed to turn the tiny Modu phone into a pretty snappy music device.

On one side of the jacket are two JBL Odyssey speakers and dedicated music controls, while the opposite side resembles a regular cell phone with a 2.2-inch display, a full navigation array, and a standard alphanumeric keypad. Admittedly, it's a little odd-looking, but we like the concept.

Other features include USB connectivity, a 3-megapixel camera, a 3.5mm headset jack, and a digital sound meter. The jacket will be available later this year for an undisclosed price.
