iRetrofone Classic iPhone Dock

by Jamie Sanford on November 2, 2010

Fabulous iPhone item today, definitely something I will want when Verizon gets the iPhone and then I get one.


Hand-Sculpted iRetrofone Base By Artist Scott Freeland Fuses Art With Function. The iRetrofone Base is a fully-functional, stationary iPhone dock with working handset and complete compatibility with USB cable. Each individual iRetrofone is hand-sculpted and hand-cast in urethane resin. The iRetrofone base is made of heavy-duty, half-inch thick urethane resin creating a stable, functional work station that routes voice communications through the included handset. Designed to be compatible with all iPhones (3G, 3GS & 4G, it accommodates sync and charge functions via a USB cable (not included). The iRetrofone base also helps eliminate concerns about radiation.

I love this. The iRetrofone Classic from Etsy seller freelandstudios is available for $195.
