Bowing Mobile Phones

While many touchscreen handsets have been moving towards flatter and broader forms, the Kurbo Smartphone embodies a smooth curving shape that actually makes it easier to use. When this is combined with its relatively narrow profile, the device is optimized for holding in your hand.

The metallic backing has a sleek and gentle bend but this futuristic form offers better ergonomics than competing gadgets do. The Windows phone affords a better grip in your folded palm and it even reduces the wear of the back pocket of your jeans with that characteristic faded rectangular outline.

Furthermore, the bowing bottom of the Kurbo Smartphone angles the microphone closer to the speaker’s mouth. João Pedro Borelli’s design receives more of your voice and less of the background noise from your calling location.
