The NichePhone-S is Looks like a Pocket Calculator

As per a report coming from Engadget Japan (which we saw via The Verge), FutureModel, a Japanese electronics firm, is releasing its new NichePhone-S - a device that will only make calls, send texts, and play some music. It looks like an odd little calculator.

The phone has a small screen on the top and it will reportedly be running on Android 4.2 out of the box. It's the size of a standard credit card and it will definitely make a mark with its $88 price tag (10,000 yen).

The phone is suitable for those users who want a simple device. Nevertheless, the tiny phone is an interesting Android gadget which signals that a segment of the population is getting bored with smartphones and is now on the lookout for something more basic.

Nichephone-s has several technical specifications that include a slot for nano-sim card, a processor- Media Tek mt6572a and micro USB charging port.

The device will apparently be capable of a few more things, however, such as recording voice memos and pairing with Bluetooth earphones - just don't expect traditional apps to run on it.

But it could be argued those handsets lack the compact charm of the NichePhone-S, which goes on sale in Japan on November 10.

There is also Bluetooth that you can pair with a Bluetooth headset for music listening and making phone calls. The phone has a battery capacity of 550 mAh which offers about 3 hours of talk time along with 72 hours of standby time.

If you are looking for the small device there is another phone by the name of Jelly which has 4G and a 2.45-inch display and it runs Android.
