Why is a "shop about books" selling a mobile phone? Because we found one that gives you something truly special: Time to read. The beautiful, Jasper Morrison-designed MP01 by Swiss electronics brand Punkt offers the ability to call & text. That's it. Gone is the constant, twitchy grabbing for your smartphone for no good reason, letting you focus on real life. Use your smartphone when you have to, but take your MP01 with you when you want to be fully present. Smart, right?
The MP 01 is a tool, designed to do a job. It flies in the face of the general trend in mobile phone design, with manufacturers fighting to make their offerings ever thinner. By this logic, the perfect phone would be ‘non-physical’: just pixels floating in the air. The MP 01 combines beautiful design with a reassuring solidity that feels good in the hand.
There are phones available for the price of a burger and chips. The MP 01 is an object of real beauty, both inside and out.
The MP 01 has an elegant monochrome user interface, designed to focus on what matters. No app icons, animations, or special effects. Nice and simple.
Stress-free Battery Life
Charge your smartphone every night. Charge the MP 01 every now and then.
A Tough Piece of Kit
The MP 01 is made with long-lasting materials, including damage-resistant Gorilla Glass, and is finished in an exclusive, high-specification camera paint. It’s built to last – unlike many products in today’s throwaway culture.
Simply switch on your MP 01 and start appreciating high quality calls on your mobile phone.
