The Low-Tech Pokia Phone Is A Hit

There’s a niche market for almost everything, and that market often hides within eBay. The Pokia is no exception. The Pokia phone is a retro low tech phone headset made by Nicholas Roope in the UK, which uses handsets from 70’s era wired phones that plug into modern cellular phones. Roope is finding a market on eBay for his creations, which apparently are quite a conversation starter. While a cool idea, the size of these things would put a dent in anyone’s pocket. My value-add is a suggestion for a cellular phone in the shape of a tin can with a string out the back (patent pending).
