Tired of cradling increasingly slim cell phones between your ear and shoulder? You could try the Bluetooth headset option — which we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy — but one company, Yubz, offers another approach: go big or go home. Think clunky, obnoxious and totally retro.
The Yubz Talk Mobile is a regular-sized telephone receiver, outfitted with a special adapter to fit most Japanese cell phones. It’s meant as a fashion statement, yes, but it’s also functional if, for example, you use your mobile at your desk. The Yubz Talk Mobile comes in several bold colors, including yellow, red and pink.
