Like that retro look in technology? Have we got a phone for you. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It’s called the Brick. A gadget that looks like one of those great big original handheld cell phones….that can work as a mobile phone or as a Bluetooth handset. It’s being sold by Binatone where President Jordan Riggs says…
“It can be used in a couple different ways. You can go and buy your own GSM card and put it in and use it just like a mobile phone. Or you can use it as a Bluetooth handset which is paired to your smartphone that could be, say, in your pocket. It’s really about fashion, it’s about attention getting, something cool that really just reminds people of the past.”
The big battery in the Brick can be used to charge other devices. It also houses an FM radio and flashlight. It’s sold at MeettheBrick.com for about 70 dollars. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
