"Brick Phones from The 1980's make a comeback"

from uk.gizmodo.com

Dom Joly eat your heart out! Forget anorexic, stylish, blinged-up fashion phones – what you really need is a brick phone from the 1980s.

Thankfully, this retro brick phone has shrunken in size considerably for use in the Noughties. This is the mini MOB handset and for some out there, you will recall [not all that fondly] the early adopters of mobile phones walking around with giant black bricks, shouting all of the time.

The mini MOB though measures just 11cm tall and 3.5cm across. It also has some new fangled features including support for music and video playback and an in-built camera. This is what you get:

* Head phones
* 2 x Batteries
* 30 days stand by 3 days non stop conversation
* USB cable and Charger (Charger requires a UK converter)
* Works with all major networks. T-Mobile, Orange, Vodafone & O2
* Camera and MP3/4 Player and also comes with a 128 mini sd memory card.

Somewhat oddly, the phones sport a BMW logo on them, which probably helps explain the £160 price tag.
