In this day and age, you could be forgiven for not knowing that landline phones are even still being made. They are, though, and their designers are attempting to keep them just as high-tech-looking as their cellular siblings. A case in point is Motorola’s new IT.6, which recently won a Red Dot product design award.
The slim cordless metal-framed handset is the phone’s real standout feature, needless to say. It’s less than 6 mm thick at its narrowest point, and features a 2.2-inch backlit LCD display, a backlit keypad, speakerphone functionality, and a swanky curved bottom that fits into its “crystal” base unit. Its battery can manage up to seven hours of talk time, or 130 in standby.
