Designed to fit neatly into a business card holder, the KY-O1L card phone is just 5.3mm thick and features a 2.8-inch screen. Made by Kyocera and coming to NTT Docomo, this compact mobile device carries the same footprint as a credit card. Despite its small size the KY-O1L card phone still comes equipped with LTE connectivity and a 280mAh battery.
Launching exclusively for the Japanese market, this phone could prove to be a hit in a business world that values compact design and business-focused aesthetics. This focus on professional function is echoed in the design of the phone as the colorless screen, lack of camera, and absent app store ensure the device is used for work purposes primarily. The KY-O1L card phone is also incredibly affordable at just 32,000 yen or about $300.
