We start off strong. There is no doubt that it arouses curiosity, but the idea is far-fetched. In 2008, a Chinese company launched a phone inspired by cigarette packs, specifically from the Chongwa brand. At best (or worst), it can be opened and used as such. Really meaner than smoking.

We continue with the special editions. Ericsson dedicated to Coca-Cola is one of them which leaves you speechless. It arrived in the United Kingdom in late 2000 and was not available for purchase, but to obtain it, you had to collect several rings of cans or bottle stickers. The ringtone mimicked the identifying melody of the popular drink. If you don’t like Coca-Cola and they look at you strangely, this phone can make you justify it.

They won’t be wearing F88s or 80s space science fiction B-series. It was the brainchild of Chinese company CEC Corp, which marketed it in 2006 for more than $1,000 change. It had a color screen and games. Due to its heavy weight it is hard to believe that it only weighed 100 grams. They certainly haven’t been inspired by existing models of smart bracelets and watches.

a Nokia He is loved as an icon of telephones of yesteryear, but in his leadership position when he was very innovative he made many missteps. They have a long history of this. No matter how hard you look at it, this Nokia 7600 from 2003 is hard to describe. It reflects the Finnish brand’s madness and obsession with organizing the keys in the least practical way possible.

A classic of lists of this genre. There are ugly Nokia devices if you search, but it’s hard to forget this hybrid between a portable console and a phone, also clearly inspired by the famous Nintendo Game Boy. Although it was not necessary to write it, the dual concept turned out to be wrong.

Perhaps this is abuse and Nokia could have added a third member instead of Motorola, but apparently this ugly billet could not be ignored.
