What Santa brought me (Product Placement) – Pop Phone the ‘Retro’ handset


Welcome back to another Product Placement review, what Santa brought me edition; and people if you liked the X-treme Geek USB Fridge when you’re going to lose your mind for this next geek based toy: the Pop Phone from Naïve Union. Why? Because if you can believe this, it is even more geeky cool (and even less complex) than the micro, one item, refrigerator powered by a USB.



The Look: It is a very blue old school telephone receiver, complete with an old school swirly cord and at the end a standard headphone jack (3.5 mm). The box is very minimalist with only three colors (white, grey, and blue) and the rest just text describing what this thing is.


The Operation: What this thing is – is a really geeky, nuevo (yet retro), handset. Not only can you hear out the thing, but you can talk into it too.  Just plug it in and go to town.


The Result: It works plain and simple. You can hear clearly and speak through the receiver without anyone (on the other end) telling the difference.




The Verdict



This item was clearly made for the use of the new age of super cell phones; I can’t imagine anyone using this thing for iPods. However knowing that fact right off, the show off possibilities are endless. Just think; you put this in your backpack with your cell, someone calls and you pull out the pop phone and start talking with it. People will look and wonder – you just give’em look that says “I just went there.” Brilliant. Heck this thing is even useable on Skype, so if you get a call on your comp no need to break out your mic – just plug this in a talk with style. I’m serious try this on the bus or an internet café; you’ll never get the same reaction twice.
