Getting hands-on with your cellphone just got a heck of a lot easier. Folks at MIT’s High-Low Tech group have assembled a very handsome DIY cellphone from about $150 in easily sourced parts. [via Adafruit]

Cellular connectivity is provided by the SM5100B GSM Module, available from SparkFun Electronics. The display is a color 1.8″, 160×128 pixel, TFT screen on a breakout board from Adafruit Industries. Flexures in the veneer allow pressing of the buttons beneath. Currently, the software supports voice calls, although SMS and other functionality could be added with the same hardware.
