The point of going wireless was to come up with a compact and portable device that will allow users to keep in touch without the bulk. But it comes with some inconveniences, and the one at the top of my list is that the phone unit gets more than just a little warm after prolonged use. A bluetooth headset is the usual, smart solution; the Pop Phone handset is the more quirky and colorful alternative.
The Pop Phone looks just like the receiver that you find on those telephones from the nineties. If your memory fails you, then you might want to take a look at some juiced-up and modernized phones that you can use with your smartphone like the iRetrofone Steampunk and the iPhone Cordless Handset.
- Improved call comfort
- Allows access to phone functions when making calls
- Eliminates over 99% of absorbed phone radiation
- Turn your tablet into a telephone via Skype or VOIP applications
- Noise reduction system
Fortunately, all that’s about to change thanks to the technologically advanced but wonderfully retro Pop Phone. Simply plug this highly evocative hunk of soft-touch plastic into your iPhone (or iPad or laptop for VOIP/Skype calls) and you’ll be the envy/laughing stock of all those who encounter you. It’s even got an old-style curly wurly cable.
The Pop Phone is available for pre-order from Firebox for £24.99 ($40.)
