Go old school with your smartphones by hooking it up with the Retro Phone Handset. If you prefer the whole package (and by that, we mean an entire vintage telephone handset for your phone), then maybe the iPhone Cordless Handset will be more your style. But if you want just the handset, well then, there’s no need to look elsewhere.
The Retro Phone Handset hooks up to your mobile phone with the jack. One thing I find annoying is pressing the phone to my ear while I’m making or taking calls and eventually feeling the entire thing start heating up when the conversation that I’m having is a long one. For your sake and comfort, there’s the handset for that, which keeps your device (and those radio waves) a bit farther away from you.
Retro Phone Handset
The Retro Phone Handset transforms your mobile into a traditional phone handset, allowing you to answer calls and still easily access the functions of your smartphone such as looking up contact details or checking calendar dates. It’s also much easier to hold between your shoulder and chin than the traditional flat mobile phone if you need to do some serious multi-tasking!
Simply plug the jack lead into your phone and when someone calls, press the button to answer – it couldn’t be any easier to use. The Retro Phone Handset will also turn your computer into a telephone using your Skype or other VOIP applications.
The Retro Phone Handset is available from Red5 for £14.95.
Haha, I just imagine me taking the speaker out of my bag when my smartphone rings.
