A handset for your mobile phone? [With poll]

By johnboy 10 November 2011 29

mobile phone

NineMSN have the peculiar news that the accessory du jour in Parliament House is a retro styled handset for one’s mobile phone to shift the radiation from the vicinity of the brain.

This still doesn’t help most of us men who keep our phones next to our balls, or the vast majority of normal humans who don’t actually spend that much time on the phone.

At around $40 according to google shopping they’re not exorbitant.

But is this cool? Or tremendously stupid?

That looks like it will come in really handy if you want to build a structure for people to get skin cancer in the shade…

Wait til they find out about the iPhone rotary phone dock.

OP: At around $40 according to google shopping they’re not exorbitant.

Checking on eBay, $40 does seem to be a bit exorbitant.

I used to have a mouse that you could flip open and use as a phone (computer didn’t have a microphone).

Could you also use your computer to design clear aluminum……Hello computer

I thought this was a pretty cool idea back in about 2001 when I saw one for an old nokia brick.

Then they invented bluetooth.

They sure did

p.s. Bluetooth was invented in 1994

To quote James May: If you get a red one, you get straight through to Fighter Command HQ and scramble some Spitfires.

Cool.

IMO still seems to be exorbitant.

It depends on who is buying it. My wfe beleives that $16/pair is exhorbitant for Lightsaber chopsticks, on the other hand I was happy to pay it 🙂

Next, get a phone receiver shoulder rest, for true hands-free function.

Or use the hands free kit that came with the phone.
