Lenny Kravitz Goes Old School ... Handset

6/28/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

Lenny Kravitz is so freakin' cool, only he could look hip using a retro handset on his mobile phone in NYC yesterday.

It won't be long before we are all using rotary cell phones.

For the man who has pockets or space to store something that large, or lackeys to carry it. I'll stop short of calling him a pretentious popinjay because it is a useful design. Although it's worth noting the audio frequency range of cellular phones, like traditional phones, even wideband audio, is quite limited so expensive phone speakers just make people look like idiots. Useful for other sounds though. At least it's not a gold iPhone.

That's a great ideal! Where can I get one of those. I always use the speaker option, put it drains the battery faster.

Can be if it's wideband audio, but if not it's just better speakers. Even then it's not brilliant audio, because the transmitted frequency range is much smaller than we can hear. I think it's a useful design though. I think hanging on to a piddly little mobile phone for any length of time can be annoying.

The 'WHY?' is because lots of scientific evidence is emerging that points to the risk of brain cancers and holding a cell phone against your skull. If you are a big cell phone user......makes sense.
