Modu Jackets- A New Spin on an Old Idea

Almost 10 years ago I bought my first pda- a Visor Handspring, and at the time it was the cutting edge of technology. One thing that set it apart was the ability to add modules to it and enable additional functionality. The Springboard modules could add MP3 functions, GPS functions, Wireless capabilities:

The new Modu phone is now recognized as the world's lightest phone, and is able to accomplish this feat by the interchangeable jackets that it slips into:

Its a shame that Handspring wasn't able to capitalize on this technology as clearly they were headed in the right direction. More info on the Modu phone can be found on the CNET Crave blog.
