★★★★ Re­plac­ing your lan­d­line with a mo­bile phone sounds easy, un­til you re­alise you have noth­ing but a warm block of ra­di­a­tion to hold on to in the com­fort of your home. This can be solved with a hand­set such as this one. De­signed by David Turpin, it looks and acts like a com­fort­able tele­phone of old and can even be cra­dled un­der your chin. A soft-touch fin­ish helps the cause, while colours — in­clud­ing pur­ple, blue and pink — help it stand out. Best of all, it fits into any stan­dard head­phone port, so you can use it with al­most any smart­phone. It can also be con­nected to a com­puter for Skype calls, though a USB con­nec­tion is sold sep­a­rately. It only has one but­ton — for an­swer­ing and re­ject­ing calls — but it is sim­ple to use.
