For Caped Crusader wannabes, the Batphone

RedHotPhone.com adds another phone to its Batman-inspired line.

Sure, iPhone users, you can watch YouTube and find directions to a party via Google Maps. But does your phone beep and blink when Police Commissioner Gordon or Police Chief O'Hara call? Yeah, didn't think so.

True, Gotham City Police probably won't be dialing you up even if you get the new bright red Batman-inspired desk phone. But at least you'll be ready if they do.

The $112 phone--which lights up when calls come in and has a blank faceplate instead of a traditional rotary dial--is the latest addition to RedHotPhone.com's line of phones honoring the Caped Crusader. Note: this one does not double as an iPod.
