On July 31, 1995, when then Union Communications Minister Sukh Ram made the first mobile call from the Department of Telecommunications in Delhi to then West Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu at Writer’s Building in Kolkata, he told the veteran Bengali politician that the launch of wireless telephony was the most revolutionary thing to happen in the country.
The wireless telephone features a tactile keypad which encircles the LCD touchscreen (lights up the caller ID when you get an incoming call) and a rotating light with sound effect during dialing. You can access your phone book, messages and phone settings. Let’s face it, this classic handle is much more comfortable than our modern, tiny ones. Up to 10h talk time and 120h standby. Requires 2 AAA rechargeable batteries (included).
