Backup Pal is a one button mobile phone backup device which archives contact information from SIM and handset memory as needed. World’s first? Hmm…probably not. Anyhoo, it won’t backup SMS messages, ringtones or any of those other annoying customisations that you insist on polluting your handset with, which is a shame, eh? There are plans for a future model to do this stuff, as well as cope with multiple handsets. The thing comes with a selection of connectors to cope with most popular phones, and others are available for a fee. Priced from $39.99. [via AVING]
