LAS VEGAS — CES isn’t just about new tablets, 3D TVs and one gazillion new Android phones. Sometimes its about the weird and the wonderful from unknown companies, and this iPhone Bluetooth handset from Hong Kong-based Native Union is plenty weird. And yes, I said handset, not headset.
The Moshi Moshi MM03i turns your iPhone into a landline phone, aesthetically at least. The weighted base has a slot for the iPhone, and you can leave it there happily charging and syncing. When you want to make a call, grab the receiver and you can make like 1995, back when you actually had a landline in your house.
To answer an incoming call, just pick it up and chat for up to six hours on a charge. You can also pair the handset with your computer for making Skype calls, and there are pick-up and hang-up buttons on the handset, along with volume controls. There’s even a 3.5mm jack in the base for hooking up to speakers.
For the tin-foil-hatters, you get the comfort of knowing that you aren’t frying your brains will evil cell-radiation every time you make a call. For everyone else, you can pretend you’re Don Draper. Pass me the whisky, now!
Available now, $150, in black or white.
