Spice stand at MWC 2008

Spice, an Indian network operator, had some interesting and amusing phones on display. First up is a phone designed for visually impaired people. It has no screen, features braille keys and speaks out the numbers as they are pressed. Sadly there’s no text-to-speech to read SMS messages or anything like that. It is very much a pure phone-phone. Still, I think it’s a very nice idea. Well done Spice!

Next up is a gamepad attachment for a phone called the “Game King”. It looks and feels as tacky as the it sounds and kind of reminds me of the PolyStation 3!

They also had some cute freebies at the stand including a very intricate phone pouch. Something for the missus perhaps…
