The Ultimate Minimalist Phone

Greg Morris, writing at his site, thinks he’s figured out the ultimate minimalist phone.

SPOILER: it’s a cellular version of the Apple Watch.

Perhaps my perfect combination would be an iPad Mini and an Apple Watch. I can’t see a future where the smartphone won’t dominate our lives, but I am some way to freeing myself. The Apple Watch gives me a semi-smart device when required, and the accompanying phone gives me a phone if I really need one. Which isn’t frequently, it sits alone on my desk because I don’t use it much. Even less now.

I would like to try this except for the part where I don’t own a cellular Apple Watch…
