From Modernized Retro Cellphones to Dual Device Smart Docks

By: Joey Haar - May 22, 2017
The relentless pace of change in the mobile technology industry leaves many with the consumer equivalent of the nausea-inducing downhill chute on a rollercoaster ride, and the May 2017 mobile trends show that companies have taken note. Instead of ceaselessly pushing forward, tech producers are opting to revert to more retro technological devices — while still adding a touch of contemporary convenience.

Throughout the history of phones, there have been several iterations. For decades, one's only access to a personal phone was through the use of a home landline. The Invoxia NVX 200 brings modern smartphone users back to that generation of phones with a dock that charges one's smartphone while doubling as a handset and teleconferencer. The LBER KR999 goes even further in the retro direction, with a shape that's indistinguishable from the very earliest cell phone models despite its smart capabilities.
