Modu 2 modular touchscreen mobile coming to UK in 2010

We saw the original Modu phone with its removable jackets that add additional functionality way back in April 2008. But now there's news of Modu 2 and

Modu is working on a 3.5G touchscreen device for launch in the UK. The company says (with refreshing honesty) that the original Modu phone "isn't good enough for Brits and Americans". But it reckons its new handset will be.

Modu plans to unveil the Modu 2 at the yearly mobile phone beauty pageant Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February 2010. UK carriers have yet to be decided.

For folks who aren't happy prodding at their phone with their fingers, Modu will offer a QWERTY keyboard jacket for the Modu 2.

We were lucky enough to get our hands on the Modu handset before anyone else and we hope to do the same with the Modu 2. Keep your eyes on for more news soon.

In the meantime you can see the original Modu and its jackets on video right here.
