Pyle Retro Home Phone – convert your expensive smartphone into an 1899 era ding-a-dong


Who can resist the lure of the vintage years? The cosy fireside mealtimes, the gentle smell of polluted industrial wastelands mixed in with all that lovely…cough…cigarette smoke? There’s no question that the old times were the best times, otherwise why would we all constantly try and recreate them by turning our modern things into retro toys?

Take this Pyle Retro Home Phone for example. It’s not enough that it looks like an old-timer on the desk, complete with a swanky rotary dial and real wood finish, oh no. This thing also comes with the ability to work alongside your very expensive smartphone (iPhone, Android or Blackberry) so you can transfer calls between the two at will.


From what we can tell all you have to do is instruct your scullery maid to connect your cell phone to this device via the 3.5mm headphone jack, and from then on your butler can pick up and hang up both the mobile and the landline from the one product. Isn’t technology simply amazing? We’re going to rush out to our Hansom Cab right now, kick our horse into action and buy one for the princely but terribly decent price of $103.99.
