Binatone Brick

 

Those of us into our forties or more will remember mobile phones like this in fact some even came with a brief case for the required battery. Here this tongue in cheek offering can be used for real or as a Bluetooth offering, however used it will be a...

Binatone Brick (Unlocked)

 

This retro-look mobile phone is silly, fun, and occasionally useful. It's a Bluetooth handset for your actual cell phone, but also works as a simple 2G GSM phone on AT&T and T-Mobile.

Eternal battery life. Radio and flashlight. Doubles as a Bluetooth headset

Rocky voice quality. Painful interface

It's not just a joke. The Binatone Brick may look like a retro gag, something you'd buy on ThinkGeek to make your techie friends laugh. But stick with me here: this $69 unlocked handset would make a fine home or car phone. The Brick works as a...
