Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring, Super Retro Phone…

Now this is my kind of cellphone:

Commissioner Gordon, Batman’s lone friend on the Gotham police force, never had it so good. The Port-O-Rotary, which comes in red or black, holds a secret – and no, it does not turn on a signal in the Batcave. It’s an old desk phone that has been rewired to work as a cellphone, keeping the loud, clanging ringer.

The Port-O-Rotary, from Spark Fun Electronics, works with most G.S.M. networks, including those of T-Mobile and Cingular….

(…)

The Port-O-Rotary weighs about two pounds and is available online only at www.sparkfun.com, where its creators have posted a play-by-play on how they morphed a 50-year-old phone model into a wireless wonder.

Okay, so it weighs two pounds and costs $400-500, but think how cool it would be to plunk down a clunky old-school phone wherever you are, and have it actually work.

No word on whether there’s a belt clip for it yet…
