Neon Telephones: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

The great thing about CES, is the fact that you can be checking out a 108-in. plasma TV one minute and then be taking pictures of pink and purple neon telephones the next. Aside from the bright neon lights, these telephones are definitely geeksugar retro-gadget worthy. And with the lights, well . . . I'll let you draw your own conclusions. Some may think these are over-the-top old school and geeky, while others will automatically say geek chic. What are your thoughts?

Brings back so many memories! I had a white one in jr. high! I'd buy one (in purple!) just to have a taste of the past. :)

They are soooo 1980's! If it was cordless I might still think they were as neat as they were when I was 12 :P

Wow, I totally had one of those in jr. high - I was so excited when I got it, I felt so cool! I would totally get another one, for nostalgia's sake alone.

I remember in high school when I had my own line with a purple vtech cordless phone with caller id!!! I felt like the coolest kid having a purple beeper and returning the calls on my purple cordless. Oh Yeah, give me back my childhood.

I knew so many girls who had these growing up. I think it could be geek chic in the right setting.

My daughter would LOVE one of those. Granted she's three. It reminds me of the phone I had in high school.. only mine was teal. I can't remember the last time I've had a corded phone.

Wow, those are straight from the 80's! I wanted one then, now not so much! I can see how they'd appeal to kids in jr. high though.
