Reuters runs a story about a guy in London who hooks up old phone handsets on mobile phones.

The story says that Nicholas Roope got already on the covers of an italian style magazine and into the home section of the NY Times with this retro phone hack.
Mr. Roope calls his creations "Pokia". He sells them on eBay (already some copycats around) if you want one of his unique creations. The Reuters article says a Hollywood producer already bought one for his limo.
