This is a phone that looks retro on the outside, but actually there is a battery-powered GSM inside… All you have to do is open the phone, insert your SIM card, and turn the unit on. The unit will utilize your phone number and account minutes. The phone dials out like the real thing through the rotary. Incoming calls ring the original, loud, gong style metal bells.
The GM862 cellular module from Telit (built inside the rotary phone) works within any country that has one of the 900MHz / 1800MHz / 1900MHz cellular bands (90% of the world). Each phone is specially built to customer needs. Please allow a 2-3 weeks for delivery. The battery can run the phone for 4-5 days and is charged by unscrewing two screws on the bottom of the phone, opening it, and attaching the charger.
The Rotary Phone comes with 2000mAh Lithium-Polymer battery (4-5 days usage time before recharging is needed) and a Li-Po battery charger (3-prong 110V and international 220V). And the only drawback here is the price, but you’ve probably already guessed that… 😉
The price of the Red Port-O-Rotary Phone is $499.
Are you a die hard Star Wars fan, then you can’t miss this. Now you can make calls to a galaxy far, far away (or your mom) with this official Star Wars Darth Vader Phone. And may the phone be with you!
You’d think Darth Vader would be far too busy plotting to take over the galaxy to answer the phone. Yet that’s what he’s going to do for you – well, almost. In fact, Darth actually is the phone. Designed in the shape of his infamous helmet, the Darth Vader Phone doesn’t do anything as predictable as ringing when you get a call. Instead you’re treated to a sinister rendition of the Imperial March as Darth turns his head majestically.
If you’re so entertained by the Dark Lord that you can’t bear to answer the call, don’t fret. With Darth’s demo mode, you can enjoy his unique incoming call signal any time you like. But that’s not all. The helmet unit also features three sound effect buttons, producing realistic recreations of the saber swing, the Imperial March and of course, Darth’s famous heavy breathing. Let’s hope that’s the only heavy breathing you get on the phone…
The Darth Vader Phone also features a standard ringer mode, ideal in case you have elderly relatives with weak hearts/bladders visiting. Other features include electronic push buttons with tone dialing and a last number redial function. This is a phone you just have to have if you’re a Star Wars superfan.
The price of the Darth Vader Phone is about $45.
