Retro Phone Handset
Gone are the days of real telephones, with real handsets. It used to be that a telephone handset had real heft, and could double as a hammer in a pinch. Forget about trying to do that with cell phones, with their flimsy flip covers and see-through plastic cases. You might as well be holding a tissue to your ear.
That’s all about to change. Now, for those times when you need an authoritative phone presence, the Retro Phone Handset is available. It plugs into a wide range of cell phones via a standard 2.5 mm plug and comes complete with curly umbilical to tie the handset to your mobile phone. (A hands-free adapter kit is also available, though I’m not sure I see the point of that.)
With this entry into the retro phone market, I forsee a wave of future retro products. How about a Bluetooth rotary dialer for your cell phone?
