Pokia is setting the world on fire with their retro phone handsets. They’re taking apart phones from the 60s 70s and 80s and rewiring the handsets to plug into today’s mobile phones. They’re selling on Ebay, but most of the offerings are knock-offs.
Now MobileMag reports that Boost Mobile, the carrier that sells overpriced wood veneered handests is taking the idea mainstream. Their Retro Phone handset has the look of a 1940s, bakelite molded phone, but, I presume, without that funky feel that old bakelite has.
