The new ‘world’s thinnest phone’ slots into a business card case

Business cards are still an inescapable part of life for most Japanese workers, so it’s good to see the country’s largest carrier make the most of the situation with a phone that can fit right inside a card holder. The “card phone” KY-O1L is made by Kyocera and is coming to NTT Docomo next month.

It’s about the same footprint as a credit card, and not all that much heftier at 5.3mm thick and 47g — Docomo calls it the thinnest and lightest phone in the world. It has a 2.8-inch monochrome e-paper screen, LTE connectivity, and a 380mAh battery. There’s no camera or app store, but you do at least get a web browser that I’m sure will be a lot of fun to use on that screen.
