The Invoxia NVX 610 is for people who think their iPhones are too dainty and miss the heft of a nice solid landline.

It's not too late. You can still turn back the clock to those go-go days of the '90s--and make yourself feel like a high-level executive while you're doing it.

The NVX 610 features a sleek, clean-cut design made with glass and stainless steel. Dock your iPhone on one end and then revel in the corded handset. The system can be expanded with cordless handsets if cords don't get you excited.

This gadget isn't just about nostalgia. There are plenty of functions to keep you busy. Download the Invoxia app and use it to control dialing and contacts. Eight speakers and eight microphones handle speakerphone duties.

The phone comes with two USB ports, Bluetooth, and two Ethernet ports to hook up to your local network. It's VoIP-friendly to bring your business calls and iPhone personal calls together into one big happy phone family.

The NVX 610 isn't necessarily looking to land in your home. Its $499 preorder price tag puts it more in the business realm where tax write-offs live, so actual high-level executives may want to go ahead and place their orders. A home version, however, should soon be on the way.
