ENTER THE NEW OLDER LOOK PHONE

NEW PHONE GETS REVAMP WITH OLD TIME LOOK


While most phones are getting smaller and being crammed with non-phone functionality, the “Sixty” cordless phone from French company Sagemcom harks back to an earlier age of domestic communications … with an injection of 21st Century design and technology.

  • The Sixty retro cordless phone

The Sixty delivers a new twist on the 1960’s Bakelite telephone by transforming the stocky rotary form into a folded, slimline design and adding a digital time fascia and capacitive touchscreen. The non-retro functionality includes hands-free calling, caller ID, 150 name and number phone book, phone conferencing, multiple languages, and an integrated digital answer machine.

The drilling bell tone of yore has been replaced with more modern polyphonic ringtones, although these include a reproduction of the original “ring ring” for those who want to retain some of the old-skool feel. There’s also rotating lights and sound effects during dialing.

One 1960s element that doesn’t make a comeback is the curly phone cord – instead there’s a wireless handset with a 10 hour battery life.

The Sagecom Sixty is available for £99.99 (US$167) … and it’ll come in any color you like as long as it’s orange.
