Posted in iPhone on 23/09/2011 by J. Glenn Künzler


An intriguing new iPhone dock has surfaced on Etsy recently that transforms your iPhone into an old-style rotary telephone! The dock features a bluetooth telephone handset mounted on a wood and brass holster, using an iPhone app to display the rotary dialer.

Although the model pictured uses Bluetooth to power the handset, the seller’s Etsy page reveals that an ene more old-fashioned version is available using a traditionally curly telephone wire to make the connection.

The handset can communicate with your iPhone up to 30 feet away, and the dock can charge your iPhone, as well as sync it with iTunes on your computer. The dock is available now for $72 – head on over to Etsy for more information or to purchase!
