Make Your Mobile Old School


Is your smartphone not retro enough for you? Does it have you longing for an old-fashioned landline phone? Do you wish you could cradle it on your shoulder while you handwrite that letter to grandma? Well, a company called Yubz is set to solve those problems for you with the Retro Handset that plugs into any mobile device including the iPhone and laptops.


Nope, it's not a joke. Yubz claims that their retro handset reduces the radiation emitted by smartphones. The handsets come in a variety of colors and patterns (including one inspired by the movie Full Metal Jacket) and retails for $49.95. Unfortunately I just don't see too many people carrying one of these around with them and whipping it out when they make or receive a call, but I could see someone using it at home, particularly in their office when they need to type on a separate device. 


Check out the website for more info and to see all of the colors and options.

I love how they think hot girls can sell anything! She's super cute, but I don't think she's going to sell me that phone!

It is available in all beautiful shades that can suit to any office or home. The handset design reminds us the nostalgic look of the old landline phones with the features of the latest functions and technology.
