Smaller than a thumb and lighter than a coin Zanco tiny t1 is smallest phone in the world. I remember a silver coloured tiny mobile phone, though not with any kind of internet usage capabilities, the phone was almost 4 inches long thar was enough for my friend to call any one she wants (almost 5 years ago). Don’t know the company to which that very tiny mobile phone belonged, but it was fun to see her calling her dad when I get that mobile not more than a fake product.
Until the time of writing this story, I thought that mobile phone to be the world’s smallest mobile phone, but it was not. As we have new one from Zanco.
