007 phone, Roger Moore vintage

Handset from China looks like miniature '80s phone

PhoneDaily

The Chinese manufacturer that came up with this "VIP 007" phone apparently had its decades mixed up when contemplating the retro-styled handset. Either that or it was particularly fond of Roger Moore, because the design of this so-called James Bond phone looks distinctly like one of those caveman versions (sorry, Geico guys) from the early '80s, though 50 or 60 pounds lighter.

True to that unfortunate form, this GSM handset sports a gigantic antenna and has its receiver on the edge of the phone, as shown on Akihabara News, but it does apparently have a color display to bring it somewhat up to date. We doubt that Sony Ericsson, which came out with an offically licensed 007 blower last year, would approve.
