tawkon gets retro handset
The people behind the tawkon Android app are launching an integrated, branded retro handset.

“The tawkon retro handsets have been made available in conjunction with the release of the new version of the tawkon Anrdoid application,” says the press release. “The app is now more social than ever, making it even easier to protect your family and friends by sharing exposure and usage statistics, as well as share how much radiation you have avoided with your Facebook friends.”

High quality speaker and microphone
Noise reduction system
Answer, disconnect, and adjust volume directly from handset
