"One smartphone, coming up. Would you want fries with that? How about a custom casing colour? Gold accents? Chrome finish? Would you like to super-size the camera to 5 Mpix? Or ultra-size it to 7 Mpix maybe? Would you like it water resistant, only $7 more? And this week only, the optional TV tuner special for only $29? Or a GPS module perhaps?"

Discuss.

Honestly, the idea is good (but completely impractical for the manufacturer), however this phone looks like something you would see in a store like DealExtreme

That actually looks pretty cool. Quite tempting, especially with it running windows mobile. If I get bored of waiting for the Meizu MiniOne I think that I might chase this one up.

This has to be a joke...
right?
Well, the article Javacat linked to claims you get the phone, but it runs Symbian instead of Windows CE.

Since most phones are put together by hand from components/build modules, adding/omitting some modules to order wouldn't be a problem. It's like cars: the basic model is this much, but then you have the optional extras: extra airbags, better stereo, GPS, metallic paint, leather seats, anti-rust coating, plush dice for the rear-view mirror...

Well, scam or not (Symbian or Windows), what do you think of the general idea?
