We have seen a few cool gadgets announced at CES 2020, but would an event of that sort be complete without one or two oddities? The Cyrcle Phone is odd because, instead of being rectangular, it is circular or round in shape.
Yes; a round phone. The last time we saw something similar to that was back in the days of Nokia and Symbian OS.
The startup behind it says it is a phone for non-rectanhular people. If you are non-rectanhular, can we see a show of hands?
I don’t know what non-rectanhular means and I doubt that you do either. However, the Cyrcle phone looks more like an old-school Sony Discman. Perhaps this is targets at music lovers too.
That is a possibility, seeing that it also has two headphone jacks. Now, you and your booboo can plug into one phone at the same time to share a moment.

Here is a video from CES 2020:
Yes; a circular phone could be an exciting prospect if you are bored with the rectangular slabs that are the order of the day.
This round phone isn’t ready yet. The makers say it should be ready in a year’s time. That is a long time, but we will be on the lookout for it.
