Yuppie cellphone-style iPhone case comes to Blighty
The bricks are back in town
Are you the type who wants to stand out from the modern iPhone user, yet refuses to use a different device? Then why not jump in the DeLorean and take it back to the 1980s with this yuppie-style iPhone case?
The 80s phone from Thumbs Up wraps any iPhone 3, 3GS or 4 in a mound of plastic until just the screen remains, giving passers-by the impression you're stuck in a time warp as a Thatcherite go-getter.
You could even complement your new brick with a stripey shirt and a fine pair of bright red braces then crank up the Sinclair C5 for added effect.
Hello? HELLLO? Sell everything!
The 80's Phone will be available in black for £13 - loadsamoney, NOT - when it goes on sale in March. Luvly Jubbly. ®
This has to be the number one reason to get an iPhone.
...You must be very young.
As to why?
It's a 10 minute joke, a gift for someone, something to put on their desk... not meant for serious use!
Interesting to see if it takes battery life back to 1980s levels too... or is that just for the Android crowd?!! :-D
For all the previous commentards who asked "why?"...
...obvious, innit: it solves the "grip of death" problem, and has a handy external antenna to boost call reception to boot.
Would this do?
