Old-world classicism meets new-age attitude in the Mimique, a cell phone that is all set to take the gadget world by storm. With looks that could dismiss even the iPhone to the bowels of obscurity and features that make you go ga-ga, the cellphone designed by the RKS team has all the ingredients that would make the future of mobile telephony bright. With a perfect blend of next-gen style and progressive touchscreen technology, the Mimique takes care of the looks and functionality aspects at the same time. The most interesting feature is certainly its open-source cellphone software that enables users to download features and ‘skins’. If you feel blue, you can change the skin to match the mood and in case you feel bright, the ‘skin’ can be pepped-up.
The open-source technology in Mimique will be developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance, which makes the phone all the more appealing. A clear differentiator is the fact that Mimique can be customized without users having to pay for redundant features. Upgrades can be made at the drop of a hat and you can even pimp a feature that you liked in a neighbor’s phone. For once, we have a phone that does complete justice to the ‘customization’ tag. Nothing more and nothing less!
