There’s been a lot of talk about SIM cards lately because of Apples newest paradigm-shifting move (i.e.- agnostic Apple SIM). There’s also a large pre-paid market and SIM service for travelers. What does this all add up to? Well, it typically means getting a second phone or doing some swapping when you travel or need discretion. Yes, I’m talking about burner phones too. While there are a few manufacturers that understand the need for a dual-SIM phones, your typical setup is fairly straight forward and assumes you’ll stick with your carrier. If you do get a second phone, that’s another device to lug around. If you must go that route, wouldn’t it be nice if it complimented your existing phone?
Talkase is a sleek and slim mini GSM mobile phone. It’s the back-up phone you always wanted and the travel companion you always needed. Whether you’re sick of phones getting way to big and complicated, have a battery that dies all the time or don’t want to worry about a second phone at all, Talkase seems like a great idea. Here’s the pitch: Talkase is a sleek and slim mini GSM mobile phone and iPhone case all in one. The size of your typical credit card, Talkase can be used as a standalone phone or can connect with your current smartphone via Bluetooth plus it can be stored conveniently in your Talkase iPhone case. As a standalone its fairly barebones, but its the size of a credit card. Might be good to stow in your kids (or your own) backpack for emergencies.
Jump in early on Kickstarter and you’re looking at as little as a $25 investment. Good idea, good price.
