Land line gets into leather

Bets on good looks for survival

GeekSugar

And now for our outrageous notion of the day: The land line is making a comeback. That's right, you heard it here first.

Long overshadowed by its glamorous mobile cousin, the homebound stalwart has been trying to get noticed however it can--sometimes by proving its toughness, other times by tarting itself up with a new design. Joining the latter category is Japan's Amadana, which GeekSugar says is weighing in with a wireless land line that's clad in leather, of all things. Now that's what we call a fashion statement.

If anyone is up to the task, it would be Amadana (not to be confused with Amana or Adama), which has already proven itself with such lust-worthy products as a beautiful bamboo-clad DVD player. Granted, the price is a tad steep at $399, but ask yourself this: Where else can you find a leather phone?
