Android minimalism at its finest

4G features don't work in the US

from PC Magazine

Punkt's simple voice phone is lovely to look at, but we can't recommend it until it fully supports calling over US 4G networks.

This device is an open rebellion against everything that smartphones have become

from Fast Company

This is a device that isn’t designed so much for mindful disconnection as it is for open rebellion against everything that smartphones have become. Using it is about as subtle as going on a crash paleo diet. I couldn’t see myself making that commitment in the long-term, but it did open my eyes.

People use the MP 02 as their primary device, with its LTE tethering feature activating a tablet or iPod touch for internet access when needed. What the MP 02 isn't, is an affordable voice phone for kids or the elderly. There's a little bit of tension between the Punkt aesthetic and my readership who want simple voice phones. The MP 02 isn't a luxury product, but it's design-focused and not cheap.
