The Handphone was made by Biodomotica and attached to the back of your hand. The speaker attached to your thumb and the microphone attached to your little finger. It didn’t take off.

The Firefly

In 2005 the Firefly was launched as a child friendly mobile phone. It allowed you to store 3 phone numbers or dial the emergency services. It was discontinued a year later.


Siemens Xelibri

Siemens released the Xelibri brand in 2003. There were four different looking models and Siemens hoped customers would want to collect all of them. The brand only lasted 18 months which isn’t a great surprise.
