We’ve seen plenty of people rip the keyboards off of their netbooks, add touchscreens and essentially turn their mini-laptops into mini-tablet computers. But one modder decided that wasn’t good enough. He essentially turned his Dell Inspiron Mini 10 into an oversized Dell Mini 3i phone, complete with Google Android.
At its core, the phone/netbook (can I call it a phonebook?) is just another tablet mod. But the designer added custom components to make the tablet look like a cellphone. And by installing an OS designed for cellphones, he was able to get the full effect. He can even make calls on the device.
The one thing you can’t do with a phone this size? Fit it in your pocket.
