‘The Brick’ Is All Kinds Of ’80s Awesome



Binatone - The Brick

With so many cool products on display at this year’s CES, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But one of the coolest products I came across was The Brick.

Retro 1980s cool doesn’t come any more iconic than The Brick, a Bluetooth handset as big as the attitude that used to come with it! Taking inspiration from the early days of mobile phones, The Brick was created as the first retro mobile ever.

Made famous by Gordon Gekko in 1987’s Wall Street and once only affordable to flash city boys, now anyone can afford this fabulous slice of fun nostalgia! The Brick may be amusing but Binatone have still taken it seriously when it comes to getting all the little details right. From the sturdy keys with sound effects to the bling logo on the back, it certainly looks the part.

The style may look back years but the technology is bang up to date, including the option of either putting your SIM card directly into The Brick or using it to make and take calls from your regular smartphone via Bluetooth. The battery gives you an impressive 14 hours of talk time (and nearly a whole month on standby), while you can use the 1.8 inch color screen with 128 x 160 resolution to scroll through your contacts or enjoy a nostalgic game of Snake.

There’s even an SD card slot on The Brick, so you can store up to 32 GB of your favorite music on your phone – just be sure to fill it with plenty of Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, Prince, a-ha, and Flock of Seagulls for the full 80s effect! Combined with a striking costume or outfit, The Brick is the perfect accessory for any 80s fancy dress party, or if the 80s was your favorite decade then use it every day!

The Brick is simple, bulky, comfy, and it’s sure to turn heads wherever you go. Within a few months, hipsters everywhere will be talking on these. Ironically, of course..
