This rotatable Nokia phone is made specially for Buddhist Monks. Drawing inspiration from meditation and Mandala, this spiritual phone has a rotating design that can be used as the prayer wheel.

With its round touchscreen and curvy body, this Tibet Nokia phone is perfectly in harmony with the universal law of life and death. The red saffron color is traditional for Buddhist monks and makes this phone even more religious.

Implications - The amount of attention placed on smartphones has blown out of proportion. The convenience of these devices are great, but not everyone can afford these items. While smartphones are incredibly profitable, cellular companies need to focus on other mobiles with good tech capabilities so that other consumers aren't forgotten.
