Subject: Gadget turns iPhone into 80s 'brick'

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/05/11 at 4:52 am

A British company are selling an accessory that makes a sleek iPhone look like a 1980s 'brick'.

Manufacturers Thumbs Up reckons there will be a strong demand for its nostalgic iPhone holder.

A company spokesman said: "By today's standards, you'd be forgiven for mistaking a 1980s mobile phone for, well, a house brick, but back in the day these chunky must-haves were the ultimate status symbol.

"We've come along way in terms of streamlined modernity and fancy features since then, but the 80s mobile remains a design icon in its own right. And with this funky phone case, you can get the best of both worlds.

"Simply slot your iPhone into the custom-made holder and capture the look and feel of the 1980s 'house brick' without losing any of your 21st-century specs!"

Thumbs Up will start selling the £12.99 plastic iPhone addition from March.
