To the delight of the small-handed, VK Mobile has launched a pair of mobiles that will slip into the slenderest of fists – the ultra skinny VK2000 (above right) and VK2010 (above left).

Billed as the world’s lightest mobile phone, the VK2000 deserves a place in the record books along freaks such as the world’s strongest man and shortest woman.

At 48g there’s not much to it. It’s about the size of a business card and is small enough to nest itself snugly by the cards in your wallet. And it looks nice. Pared down to the absolute basics, it looks, rather charmingly, like a four-year-old’s calculator.

The VK2010 is a little more portly at 50g and a millimetre here and there, but it doubles as a rudimentary MP3 player saving you a fair amount of gadget juggling. It throws a weighty punch for a littl’un too, boasting a 65,000 colour LCD, 128 MB memory and Bluetooth.

VK Mobile’s phones are aimed at the fashion conscious, but this tiny pair is pretty inconspicuous. So if you want to show off what a dedicated follower you are, you’ll have to flash them about. We suggest sticking them to your forehead with Blue tack for maximum exposure.

The VK2010 and the VK2000 are available from March 2006. Prices aren’t available yet, but the minute we get them you’ll be the first to know.
