Complete with Apple Macintosh Plus styling, the concept phone includes a monochrome display that probably won’t play Oregon Trail or Number Munchers, an old school rotary dial, serial cable charging port, mundane plastic housing and a whopping 512kb of memory. It’s obviously only a concept design piece, but it’s incredibly well put together.
