Since Buddhism is the most followed religion in China, this Chinese cell phone maker has cashed on to people’s beliefs and launched a Buddhist Mobile plated with 24 karat gold. I wonder what the connection is between the Enlightened One and a cell phone and Gold. The highlight of the cell phone is the distinguished incarnation of Lord Buddha design. Sporting a stainless steel body that is gold-plated, the top of the screen is also in gold. The button pattern designs are also inspired from Buddhism. A carved jade button called the "Buddha video button” is no ordinary one as it allows you to watch the Buddha on the video all the time. It features classic Buddhist music and you can opt from 12 sutras. It is truly a exceptional cell phone designed from top to bottom and inside out presenting Buddhism.

It uses liquid battery, speech recognition, flexible touch screen, touch sensitive body cover which lets it understand and adjust to the environment. It has a simple programmable body mechanism so that it changes forms in different situations.
You don't have to carry it in your pocket or on your wrist. You can carry it anywhere, in any form. You can roll it, bend it, put on your clothes like a clip. It also makes some form changes that makes it more ergonomical: i.e. when you want to talk on the phone, the body form turns into the form of the good old telephone. You can personalize these forms and record them. So it fits you the best in the way that you have chosen. The functions that it has also create a feeling of electronically pet, as it senses your moves, understand what you want, respond you in the best way. It learns you, to fit you better. Also e-motions lets you send forms to the other 888 users. It could be the shape of a heart or a small dance. This way you can talk without words.
E-motions… It means electronically motions that 888 has. You can send and receive forms from / to friends. You can send a heart shape to your girlfriend, so her telephone turns into an icon of heart. Or you can send a dancing form to your friends to call them to the party tonight. This is the
fun side of the product. If we look from the functionality side, 888 is quite flexible. You can put it into your pocket, roll it and make it smaller, or put on your wrist when you want to make a video call on the go. If you want to talk like a normal telephone, there you have your telephone shape. We go
through a lot of places and situations in the daily life, so it seems like one form is not enough.
You can change the form of the body. Not just the color. And you can do the same by sending an e-motion to your friend.
The idea is that “the perfect form” does not exist. “Form follows you” We create the perfect form for each function.
