Undecided about the iPhone 5? How about a smartphone made from bamboo

Comments (2)


Apple may have sold over 5 million iPhone 5s already. But with Apple's own map sending people over the edge (not really) and reports of people unboxing the new wonder only to find it having a scratch or a dent, we thought we'd take a look at what else is out there.

What we came across - as the panda loving individuals we are - is quite exciting: a phone made from bamboo!

OK, The Bamboo Smartphone isn't entirely made from bamboo, but rather has the important chips and tech essentials (it runs on Google's Android technology) encased in the lightweight material. And there's no need to worry about the durability either, as it has been specially treated to withstand horrible weather conditions (a must in the UK!), water and the occasional meeting with the ground.

We think its gorgeous! Where do we sign up to get one?

Created by ADzero, the design was launched at Tent London last weekend.
