Sometimes it’s good to take a break
“I was inspired to make a simple mobile phone because my step-daughter was suffering from insomnia due to too much screen-time. I believe technology is a wonderful tool but if we always have a computer in our pocket... well it’s still a tool, but no longer one that we control. The MP 01 offers a middle-path alternative. Some people use it as their only phone, together with a laptop or tablet, but more often it’s used alongside a smartphone – operating as an elegant physical firewall against technological overload.
A mobile phone has something in common with a wristwatch, or a pair of spectacle frames. They’re all quite personal items, and we expect to keep them for a long time. The MP 01 is designed and built to be a pleasure to own.”
Petter Neby, founder of Punkt.
“The Punkt. MP 01 Mobile Phone integrates unique hardware and software, to create a rare blend of simplicity and sophistication. The focus is on having conversations, short or long – with texting available as an option when required.”
The dedicated Contacts button takes you straight in. Press it, find who you’re looking for, and press the Call button. That’s it.

Activate call-forwarding on your smartphone: take the calls but skip the emails and notifications.
If your telecoms supplier provides this option, ask them to duplicate your existing SIM so you can make and receive calls to your smartphone number when it’s time for Reachability Lite.
Use the MP 01 in conjunction with a laptop or tablet: the phone lets you text and make calls, and you get a QWERTY keyboard for composing emails.
Use the earpiece provided, or your car’s hands-free system.
If you have to reply to emails and check documents outside the office, having two phones – a smartphone and an MP 01 – is an ideal way to ensure that, when it’s time to switch off, you really do leave your job behind.
With the MP 01 you have everything you need for true peace of mind when you’re off-grid.
