A mobile phone that lasts.

In a commentary of the prevalent rise of mobile phones in today’s society, permutations of newer models are actively added into already inflated market.

 

This gives rise to a noble question: Is there really such a pressing need for an epidermic of mobile phones?

Made out of Solid Timber, each natural organic pattern ensures a unique Carcass of Buddy designed for you. The use of solid timber also allows beautifying of blemishes and scratches through time.

 

Buddy utilizes a full touch-screen feature, mimicking the organic grain patterns into the screen, giving off a beautiful illusion of an interactive wooden bud. 

 

Buddy reduces its features to the bare minimum of calling and text messaging.

Send Leaf Messages; Reach out to another; and at the end of the day, Recharge Buddy.
