Why not defeat the purpose of having a small, nifty and handy mobile phone by creating a ginormous and heavy (albeit a ‘statement’ in the chic design world where I don’t belong) handset!
Sarcasm aside, I think it’s COOL! The handset is a product of an awesome German handset manufacturer, Retrostar.
Imagine this: your phone is ringing, you reach into your bag and pull out a large vintage red phone handle, complete with its curly cable. If you manage to earn a few stares, Retrostar has officially succeded!
It probably won’t work in Tokyo though. They probably carry a banana shaped phone in Harajuku for all I know. :p
What do you think? Cool handset or useless space eater?
