Raines' oldfangled new phone

Raines Cohen brought this with him to breakfast. It's a new handset for his cell phone that looks just like the handsets on old rotary phones. It works. Had to take a picture. :-)

    Those plug-in retro handsets are awesome. What phone is this? Why is the bezel on the screen so humungous?

    That's a Danger Sidekick 3

    He brought it to breakfast today, we couldn't believe it actually worked.

    my wife loves those, because (unlike her RAZR) she can actually hold it on her ear, y'know like we used to? there's a bluetooth model as well

    Any chance of linking to a product page for this?

    Bezel on Sidekick is big because it is protective yellow shell. I wanted to get the yellow handset, but only the damaged floor demo was available so I settled on classic black.


    I bought it Sunday at Real Goods www.realgoods.com/ in Hopland, CA, at the Solar Living Expo http//www.solfest.org/

    They also make one that's a VoIP phone that you plug into your USB port.

    I plan on having some fun with this in Black Rock City next week... in conjunction with a VoIP phone.

    Or you could go the retro Bluetooth route: www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/8928/

    Wow, that Bluetooth version is hot! I want one.
