Accessory Alert: My, My Telephone
May 13, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Hello? From the second I picked up the Pop Phone one week ago, my ear has not touched my
iPhone Blackberry. Speaking into yesteryear's telephone receiver on the street, in a restaurant, at a wake, is a wholly over-satisfying experience. It warrants passerby reactions anywhere from smiles of amusement, nudges to a friend, giddy laughter and "Damn, that's so gangsta!" (I got that on two different occasions, no lie). And everyone will ask you where you got it.*
The Moshi Moshi Pop Phone by Native Union plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone/iPad/Blackberry/Computer and renders your newfangled technology into an old fashion rotary.
It's not only good for a laugh, it makes for healthier conversation by blocking 99% of your cell phone's radiation.
Also, if you have a touch screen, all the grease and bacteria from your fingers are smudging all over your cheek when you talk. Gross. This eliminates that without looking like you're talking to yourself (aka earbuds).
Designed by the Frenchman David Turpin, cheeky bastard, and he gave it a soft finish. It feels so good in the hand. And it comes in a whole slew of bright hues (red available too!):
*And the answer to where you got it:
A. Turen, 85 Stanton St. NYC. It's $34, but go now, mention Fashion Indie and get 10% off.
Alright, I gotta go. Love you, too. Bye!
