Modu was an Israeli mobile phone company founded in 2007 by Dov Moran. The company invented the Modu, a modular cellular device which could be used in various other devices. Modu company held the record for the world’s lightest mobile phone. The Modu phone enabled users to personalize their mobile's looks and features in a simple way by inserting it into a range of unique phone enclosures, known as Modu jackets.
