Disposable mobiles?

Whatever happened to the "disposable phone" concept? back in 1999, Randice-Lisa Altschul was issued a series of patents for the world's first disposable cell phone. Trademarked as the "Phone-Card-Phone"®, the device was a few credit cards thick a nd made out of recycled paper. Six years on, and there doesnt appear to be much pogress from the patent announcement and the claim that the product would be ready for production in 2002. The comapny website has expired and I cant find any other sniff about this on the interweb...
Anyone know what happened?
