      I think this is a nice phone. In fact, I reckon that when push button phones were first conceived, various ideas for arranging the buttons were tried out.

      One idea was for the buttons to be in a circular arrangement like a rotary dial, instead of the 4 rows and 3 columns arrangement that is more commonly used. So this phone could be what early push button phones might otherwise have looked like.
