MAKERphone - an educational DIY mobile phone

MAKERphone parts
  1. MAKERphone circuit board
  2. MAKERphone casing
  3. 128*160 full color TFT LCD
  4. GSM module
  5. Main microcomputer module - a dual core processor with built-in Wi-Fi, BLE, and a charging circuit
  6. Sound module
  7. Amplifier module
  8. Stick-on antenna
  9. 9) A bag with other tiny electronic components and a 128MB SD card preloaded with games and apps
If I have a bit more time, I'd be all over this. You get all the parts to build a mobile phone and there will be plenty of resources to help you code games and apps. There's even a tools kit which gives you everything you need to be able to put it together and get it working, if you don't have them already. I suck at soldering, so I'd want more practice before embarking on a project like this. Really need to finish of that Konstructor kit I was given ages ago...

I thought the scooter looked pretty cool anyway, but didn't realise how enormous it was:
