Meet the Punkt MP01
In a world of internet and distractions the MP01 internet-free/distraction-free phone might just be the best thing for us.
Over 33% of the world’s population owns a smartphone, which means that essentially that same number have access to the internet. The internet has made communication easier than ever before, united the whole world, and created the archetype of the information exchange. It might seem a little bit strange for someone like me, which has completely delved into the world of social media and the internet to even bring up such a topic. It is. I love the internet, and it is really what makes my life complete. Without it The Mainframe couldn’t exist.
The MP01 is not a phone that complements the 33% of the population with a smartphone, but to me it has a much greater purpose.
While the internet is all about being connected and making communication easy, we’ve moved away from reliable communication techniques such as voice calling (speaking to people on the phone) which is something that all of us have probably not done in a while. The traditional purpose of a phone was to be able to speak to each other. That hasn’t really changed over the years but it has evolved with the introduction of the internet and VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) services. To some extent calling is still the purpose of a phone and all of the other distractions are just additions that are said to make our lives easier, but really don’t.
The MP01 attests to this. The whole purpose of the distraction-free and internet-free phone is to simplify the phone from what it has become to what its original purpose was. The following extract from their website outlines that perfectly:
The more our phones do, the more they demand of us. Sometimes it’s good to take a break. But until now, the only alternative to hyper-connected smartphones has been the kind of phone you find at the back of a drawer.
The Punkt. MP 01 is a stylish, well-crafted mobile phone which focuses on modern simplicity, inside and out. It makes phone calls and sends texts. That’s all.
That is exactly what the MP01 is. It just lets you call and text people, so no more checking your email when you’re supposed to be spending time with your family.
Thanks for watching and reading! 🙂
