Hulger's retro Skype phone


Just because a Skype or VoIP phone plugs into a PC doesn’t mean it has to look like a pocket calculator. Take the Hulger P*Phone – it still plugs in like a typical net phone, but takes its styling from the days when PCs were huge monsters with spinning wheels controlled by men in white coats. 

Apart from the funky retro design, it’s easy to use (just plug it in), is Mac compatible and will also work as a tasty, if slightly ridiculous addition to your modern mobile phone via the included adapter.

It’s available in a range of colours to match your PC, PDA or mobile phone – and especially for Valentines Day, you can even pick up a pink one. The handsets retail for around £49.
