Sagemcom Sixty Cordless Phone Goes Back to the Future

by Paul Strauss

In a time where land-line phones are a dying breed, the idea of an old rotary phone seems even more like a distant memory. But Sagemcom is trying to breathe new life into the old desk phone with this modern tribute to Bell’s iconic rotary phone.

The Sixty apes the lines of the classic phone, but rips out its guts and cord and gives it a sleek modern look from the side. Under the hood, the bright orange phone offers DECT cordless calling, with a touch dial and a white-on-black LCD dot-matrix screen for Caller ID, time and speed dial info.

The phone has a 150 number phonebook built in, a digital answering machine, and offers a speakerphone mode too. The thing even makes those old clicky rotary sounds when you press the buttons, and little LED dots simulate the dial spinning.

It looks like The Sixty is currently available only in Europe where it sells for £99.95 (appx. $160 USD). That’s a lot of coin for a land-line phone, but I’m still hopeful that someone will decide to import them stateside – I’d love to get rid of my crappy old GE cordless phone and replace it with one of these.
