Mehmet ErkÃ¶k. The name sounds straight out of a Terry Gilliam movie and so do his customised Nokia phones, which is the sort of retro technology that you could have seen in 12 Monkeys. The orange one could have even made it in Barbarella no, not a Terry Gilliam movie but it has Jane Fonda running around half-naked, like these modded mobiles. ErkÃ¶k is not a time traveller, though, but a lecturer at the Department of Industrial Product design in the Istanbul Teknik Ã”niversitesi, in Turkey. The picture of the blue one after the jump makes me want one. Now.
All I can say is: screw the iPhone. In my book, anything with tinted screens and springs wins.
