There must be one born every minute.
Are you the type who wants to stand out from the modern iPhone user, yet refuses to use a different device? Then why not jump in the DeLorean and take it back to the 1980s with this yuppie-style iPhone case? The 80s phone from Thumbs Up wraps any iPhone 3, 3GS or 4 in a mound of plastic until just the screen remains, giving …
In four years, there have been only three shapes of iPhone, all of them very similar and with exactly the same size of screen. That makes the form factor extremely compared to the market for all other phones. Nobody else keeps their handsets in as similar a form and nobody else sells so many of a single handset (albeit if only because the main competitor is characterised by choice).
Ok I want to go back to the 1960's, so I need a plastic moulded full size portable red telephone box I can setup and step into on the street of my choice, to make my calls. :)
Its clearly a Friday news day. :)
Come to think of it, a full size moulded red telephone box would work great in the pub. :)
Feasibly, a large battery with a usb input that a shortened iPhone cable could connect into (think of those iphone car chargers) could be used as an extra battery supply.
OR ideally you could buy a 1980s Mercedes S Class and permanently bolt the whole thing into it, and put an extra aerial on the bootlid.
OR connect several iphones together and have a retro "party-line".
The iphone interface should be remade in Teletext graphics for added effect.
In 2040, there's going to be an iPhone style case for your implanted comms/governmentz ID chip to enable you to look all "cool and retro". Not sure how it will work with the chip being inside your body but still it will be a talking point amongst you and your friends as you reminisce about those iPhone yuppies of the late noughties!
Mines the one lined with tin foil.
Not too far off from MinionZero's idea, you can actually buy converted classic rotary dial phones, put a sim card in them, and then use them like a regular phones. If I had the extra money for a sole home line, I think I'd do it. It'd be fun.
This brick would be kind of an interesting item if it looked anything like the actual brick cell phones from back in the day. This thing looks like they way one might be drawn in a cartoon. Either way, "fun" pointless item.
