Au’s Infobar 2 mobile phone

Infobar

I’m hardly ever impressed by the aesthetics of mobile phones. They’re all too "seriously" designed, trying to hard to be sleek and sexy but failing miserably. Maybe that’s the problem – can a phone actually be sexy? I’m not so sure.

Which is why I applaud Au’s newest release, the chunky, funky and plain fun looking Infobar 2. Resembling a cross between 1970s concept of the "phone of the future" and one of those single-game only handhelds from when you were a kid, I love the smooth, rounded design that looks like the thing is filled with helium. But I think the best description comes courtesy of Au itself: "Square it was and the form like whether the candy dissolved in the mouth and had roundness of".  I couldn’t agree more.

The 2.6-inch OLED screen has 240 x 400 resolution, there’s a
2-megapixel camera, mobile TV tuner, micro SD card slot, 290 minutes
talk time and 350 hours’ standby and comes in five awesome colour combos.
