Handheld Cellphone Jammer Is Diabolical

handheld-cellphone-jammerIf you’re a secret agent, or just a big tech geek, this cellphone jammer doesn’t seem very impressive, but for the rest of us, it’s a pretty big deal.

Using this easy to conceal jammer, you can cause panic everywhere you go, and just sit by and watch everyone around you scramble in despair. It looks like an oversized pack of cigarettes, with a few cigarettes sticking out, but it won’t hurt your lungs, just mobile phone frequencies.

The 3W High Power Cellphone Jammer affects all major cellphone frequencies, including GSM 900/1800, 3G, CDMA GSM, DCS and PHS, but it only has a range of about 20 meters. Powered by a 1,600 mAH battery, and can even block the L1 frequency from GPS satellites.

Let’s face it, it was only a matter of time before the Chinese created a Bugatti Veyron shaped phone, just like they did with other famous cars like Audi or BMW.

The Bugatti Veyron phone isn’t a smartphone, but it does pack enough features to raise the interest of unusual design mobile enthusiasts. It has a 2.4 inch touchscreen, a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity, FM radio, MP3 player, and like most Chinese phones, dual-SIM capabilities.

The first Sharp solar-powered phone to be marketed outside Nippon comes with a solar cell module, 2.9 inch LCD display and a 5 megapixel camera.
