Remember the early 2000s? Before smartphones, the mobile telephone industry was in a race to see how small, compact and light a cellphone could be. Every new phone was thinner and tinier.
Nowadays, even the phone Steve Jobs swore would never get larger - the iPhone - comes in a whopping 5.5 inch version. Google has a 6 inch Nexus phone and there's really no smaller option for people looking for an top-tier smartphone.
For better or for worse, we may never see another sub-4 inch smartphone with the top specifications. That's because the market has spoken, and it wants bigger screens for watching videos and playing games. But there are times when you might want a smaller phone - and I mean much smaller. Enter Talkase.
Talkase is a tiny backup phone built into a smartphone case. It's about the size of a credit card, and it's designed to work in tandem with your smartphone. It's not for games or videos and it's not even smart. It's a compact way to make important or emergency calls when you don't have the space for your smartphone or the battery has died.
