“Lëkki is a French company aiming to buck the trend of ever-improving mobile phones, by revamping the most iconic vintage handsets from the 90′s. The company started in fall 2010 with the classic Motorola StarTAC flip phones first popularized by famous 90′s actors such as Michael Douglas (The Game) and re-clad it with colourful glossy colors.

By customizing those second-hand mobile phones, Lëkki promotes a “back to basics” philosophy (phone+text) and makes a commitment to sustainable development and recycling, through putting iconic objects from the past back into service.”

    The packaging of the phone looks pretty good; but I think the idea of bringing back old technology is a bad idea. If they took the phone and gutted it and loaded it with a better antenna and added some smart phone features — then yes.

    Jordan hit the nail on the head. Vintage look and feel is one thing but vintage technology is something that shouldn’t be touched.

    Jordan I think you’re missing the point here. I think thats an awesome idea to bring back old school technology. It’s amazing how much of a distraction our phones really have become. I agree though that the sound quality should be spot on if they expect people to ditch their modern technology.

    Nah. Nothing wrong with the old technology, but it is smarter in terms of sustainability to use newer chips, antennas, batteries and displays to make the phone more energy efficient. Think of having to charge your phone only once a week! The general idea is great. Phones have become a huge distraction with all those apps and stuff.

    Very cool idea! I like the reusing of old phones and the packaging is very interesting.
