Pyle®, manufacturers of home, car and pro audio equipment, unveils its Retro Home Telephone Collection for smartphones. Designed to resemble old-fashion rotary phones, the Retro Collection features simple-to-use buttons for answering landline and smartphone calls. Users can easily switch between the two devices, merging the simplicity of a landline with the feature packed smartphones of today. The Retro Home Telephone Collection ranges from $89.99 to $109.99 (MSRP) and is available on Pyleaudio.com.
These classically designed rotary desktop telephones (PRT55I, PRT35I, PRT15I , PRT25I), handcrafted from real wood and adorned with brushed copper parts, work with landlines allowing for normal telephone functions, as well as smartphones. In addition to letting you talk on your smartphone in style, using the handset also helps shield you from up to 99 percent of the radiation absorbed when speaking directly into cellular phones. The collection is compatible with all 3.5mm jack mobile phones and tablets, including iPhone, Android, Blackberry, iPad and the latest MacBooks.
“We are excited to bring the classic style rotary phone back to the 21st century,” says Abe Brach president of Pyle Audio. “Using a handset not only helps eliminate 99% of the radiation absorbed by your body while using a cell phone, but also looks good while doing so.”
