Old School Handset Makes iPad Look Like Giant iPhone

Yes, we've heard all of the jokes, including the ones involving maxi-pads, but saying that the iPad is a big iPhone has actually become reality, well sort of. This old school handset is going to take up space, but it will sure make people laugh when you pull it out.

The Moshi Moshi handsets allows you to use Skype or Google Voice with your fancy new iPad, making it look like an old school gigantic phone and giving it an iPhone-like look. We've already mentioned these nice handsets. However, they go on sale today, they are compatible with the iPad, and there is a cheaper model available, the 01H handset.

Most people will probably laugh out loud when they see this, but it's sure going to give a whole new spin on the fact that some people call the iPhone the 'iPad Nano'. Now the Moshi Moshi handsets aren't just a one-trick pony. They will work with your MacBook, iPhone, and smartphone. We kind of like the red-colored handset, kind of makes us think that we'll be getting a call from the President! The cheaper models have wires, while the more expensive models connect via Bluetooth.

The Moshi Moshi handsets start out at $30 and go up all the way to $200 at Native Union. The more expensive models come with a nice dock, but we think that the cheaper model is the best deal. The initial price we saw was $60 for the lower end model, but it looks like there's even a cheaper model, the 01H, which makes a lot of sense.
