A new concept cell phone sports sort-of a throw-back design, and it reminds me of the massive "woody" station wagon that we had when I was a kid because of the old-school wood panel trim. This cell phone was created by designer Seungchan Lee, and it does a good job of blending the old with the new.
This ultra-slim "woody" cell phone may sport the retro wood paneling, but it's definitely not old school on the inside. This smart phone features a large touch-screen display, 3 MP camera, and Bluetooth - it also comes equipped with earphones and an external Bluetooth keypad which is also trimmed in wood.
The size and shape of this phone is very reminiscent of the iPhone. The back of the "woody" features a very cool textured design that is unlike any other cell phone on the market right now. Overall, I kinda like the retro design of this phone, but it really comes down to a matter of taste whether or not you like this it.
Unfortunately, this "woody" is only a concept cell phone right now, and so it's not currently available. I'll keep you posted, though, when and if this one ever hits the market.
