Native Union Pop Bluetooth Retro Handset

Most everyone who knows me, knows I’m “old school” in many ways… movie night for me could very well include an Audrey Hepburn, Bette Davis or Alfred Hitchhock classic (thanx Mother).  Or maybe an evening with Sly & The Family Stone, Queen or Earth, Wind & Fire emitting from the vintage turntable (thanx Dad).  Suffice it to add, when I learned about the Native Union Pop Bluetooth I could hardly wait to get my hands on one.

Aside from the retro look reminiscent of days when life was oh so good, this handy little gadget eliminates up to 96% of radiation compared to direct use of a mobile phone, the audio is crystal clear and you are free to navigate your device while chatting away.  The handset was designed by David Turpin, and inspired by the classic 1950’s Bakelite phone, it has a great feel with a soft, rubberized texture .  Also, no annoying cord attachments with Bluetooth technology, although there is an older plug-in version.  I must admit, I was a bit amused by the mere thought of rocking this accessory in the beginning, however, I use it consistently…

while catching up on the latest with those I love.

Grab one for yourself or get a head start on your Christmas stocking stuffers, visit Native Union or Ron Robinson at Fred Segal
