Reimagining A Vintage French Telephone
By James Grahame
The Sagemcom Sixty pays homage to the classic French Socotel S63 telephone.The €89.90 unit features a DECT cordless handset with 10 hour battery life and a range of up to 300 m. It incorporates a decidedly modern white-on-black dot matrix screen with 13 LED dial buttons that flash in sequence to mimic the motion of the old rotary dial.
I've been thinking about getting a new phone to replace my broken land line phone at home. This might be it. Oh, what? Yeah, I still have a land line phone at home. I know. But if I cancel service, Comcast will increase my monthly bill for Internet/Cable. Yeah. I know, right?
If only I could dock my iPhone!
