Retro phone heaven: Ericsson T28s
I loved the design of this Ericsson flip phone so much that upon my contract renewal, I decided to obtain another T28s. I eventually replace it with the equally brilliant T39m (featuring the same keyboard flip minus the spring action button). These days smartphone (and even dumbphones) features the same boring looking slabs with only a few manufacturers putting much emphasis on design. But back in the late nighties and early noughties, design played a far more important roll in the production process and indeed, the marketing of such devices.
Now I only need to source a charger and I am ready to rock this phone as my main device for a day. With Twitter via SMS, I can't wait! Anyone care to donate me one? Scratch that, is anyone willing to part with a R380?
