Following a uniquely Asian trend as of late, the BW-A888 brings retro-cool to an everyday handset. This phone can run on its own or be snapped into the giant brick enclosure to instantly impart that early '83 Motorola DynaTAC cool. Not only does the "brick" component give you extended battery life, added weight, and a big speaker, it has what appears to be a compass mounted on the side in place of bothering with fancy technology like GPS. We kinda like this idea; not enough to go out and buy one mind you, but enough to at least check out the pics and smile a little wayback-when smile.
