Try this: An old-school telephone handset for your new-school smartphoneI caught one look at the retro “Pop Phone” handset over the weekend (my hairdresser had one sitting on her counter, attached to her new Android phone) and instantly fell in love.

Yes, it looks almost exactly like the old-style telephone handsets that those of a certain age will remember—big, friendly, easy to cradle, and it works with your iPhone, BlackBerry, Android phone, or any mobile device with a standard 3.5mm headset jack. Just click the button sitting on the inside curve of the handset ($29, available in six colors) to answer a call or hang up.

Quite clever—and it also makes for a stylish accessory for those paranoid about cell phone radiation.
