Nothing Says “I’m Stuck in the 1990s” Like Lëkki’s Motorola StarTAC in Hot Pink
If you were one of those people that watched the iPhone4 v. HTC Evo Xtranormal videos made by Brian Maupin and caught yourself thinking that today’s mobile phones are just downright overcomplicated, you’re definitely going to like LÃ«kki. The brand new Paris-based startup launched in September is looking to bring back the good old simple portable phones of the 1990s – but in an environmentally friendly and stylish way.
Forget Facebook, Foursquare, email and all those other time-consuming applications out there. If you don’t want to spend your life on your phone (which also happens to be a clock-camera-calculator-garage door opener-microwave-in-one), LÃ«kki’s “Back to Basics” approach offers telephones that make calls and send texts – and do absolutely nothing more.
