We’ve got to admit to being a tad confused by all this retro rush back to yesterday, especially when it comes to things like mobile phones. The whole point of a ‘mobile’ phone is the fact that it’s…well…mobile, right? So what’s with all the accessories which try and make the things less mobile? Are we missing something here?
Take this iCooly product. It’s a handset stand and wired headset for your smartphone, which is styled to make your 1000 dollar handset look like a $35 landline phone. Go figure. There are models for iPhone variants as well as specifically for Samsung and other smartphones (which actually look a little less retro and a bit more stylish), but we’re still not entirely getting it.
Our thinking is, if you need handsfree, then just hit the speaker button on your phone and you’re done, especially if you’re worried about holding the phone to your ear a long time. Anyhoo, different strokes. The iCooly retails at $29.99 to $39.99 depending on which model you choose and comes in various colors.
