You can Skype in style and yap while typing. This retro phone handset rests on your shoulder for hands-free talking galore. Just like the good old landline days. But it connects to a cellphone.

The POP Phone by Native Union comes in neon yellow, leopard, stars and stripes, Hello Kitty pink and other colors. A pick-up/hang-up button is at your fingertips in the center. The jack is compatible with most smartphones and tablets. The phone costs about $20 with a curly cord; the cordless model with Bluetooth is $30.For more information, go to www.nativeunion.com.
