Do you remember the good old days of featurephones – simply called that because there were no smartphones in the market just yet? Well, there came to a point where the antenna was “lost” in the form of the Nokia 3210, and then followed by an ever shrinking form factor before the handset design decided to grow larger and larger again. Having said that, the advent of smartphones saw a screen size that could be used with just a single hand before it grew to require both hands to use it properly. If you are on the lookout for a really, really small Android-powered device in the US, then the Posh Mobile Micro X S240 might be your cup of tea.
Possibly the smallest Android-powered smartphone in the US by virtue of it being made available via Amazon, this will be a handset that comes with a 2.4” display as well as specifications that clearly place it on the low end side of things. Running on a MediaTek MT 6572M SoC that sports a dual-core 1GHz CPU, it will be accompanied by a paltry 512MB of RAM as well as 4GB of internal memory, with a 2MP snapper at the back with a VGA front-facing shooter. Seems like we have stepped into a time machine here and turned the dial backwards, don’t you think so? For whatever little power that this handset packs, the 650mAh battery should be enough to keep it and Android 4.4 chugging along just fine.
The asking price? A mere $52.55 from Amazon from the standard $89.99, while those who would prefer to pick it up in blue, pink or white will be able to do so for $49.99 a pop.
