Yuppie cellphone-style iPhone case comes to Blighty

The bricks are back in town

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

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.

80's Phone

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. ®
