About: Battery chargers for mobile phones are not the most exciting objects in the world, but Bang & Olufsen have a continual habit of making a virtue out of what others see as ordinary. By combining the battery charger with a specially designed holder, BeoCom 9800 suddenly became a mobile phone that users really wanted others to see!
Weighing less than 100 grams and able to fit snugly in a pocket, the BeoCom 9800 mobile phone was one of the world’s smallest cellular phones when it was introduced, with an equally impressive list of features. Tell it the name of the person you wish to telephone and BeoCom 9800 dialled it. The inclusive BeoCharger combined holder and battery charger in an attractive package.
