Those of you in your 30s like me likely remember early cell phones from TV. Huge brick shaped things with no battery life that were hugely impractical but were the only portable option short of the suitcase phones that Motorola first launched. The folks at Binatone have brought back the basic design with a modern battery that can last up to 3(?) months on a single charge. In addition to being able to be used as a very basic cell phone with any SIM card, it can also function as a bluetooth handset, allowing you to make and recieve phone calls without the distraction of a smartphone when you don't want it around.
I don't know if the idea will take off, ut I have reached out to the folks at Binaphone for a demo unit to see how it works.
