It may seem a little strange, but not everyone wants or needs a portable mobile phone. For some people, it’s more important to have a nice steady and comfortable headpiece on which to conduct their very important conversations. And they like big buttons and the solid heft of a proper landline desk phone.
There’s also no denying that removing the cord from a desk phone offers all sorts of imaginative options. Such as wandering around from cubicle to cubicle while on a call, or flinging the set at the nearest minion in frustration, without worrying about ripping a hole in the decoration.
For those needs and more, there’s the Wireless GSM Desk Phone, a telephonic masterpiece which combines the best of the cell phone with the best of a desk based landline set. Pop a standard GSM SIM card into the unit, charge up the battery pack (or plug the phone into a wall socket) and you’re set to go.
The quadband unit can send and receive SMS messages, has full hands-free speakerphone capabilities and offers 3 hours talktime from a charge. It’s perfect for those who work out of a variety of offices and want to carry around a solid sized phone to use instead of a pocket full of fancy. Priced at $39.75 or £24.42.
