Not a mock-up, not a Photoshop project, not a character from the upcoming live-action Transformers movie — this bag really is a fully functional telephone. It kind of sucks that it's not actually a cell phone; it's a regular phone that you need to plug into a landline, but I guess it predates all that wireless business. The kitschy caller will set you back $295 from La Pochette, and it also comes in black. Still, you have to wonder who played matchmaker between the beautiful-yet-innocent handbag and the ruggedly handsome telephone, whose union produced this container-communicator hybrid, but they really have to be stopped before they discover the USB-device market. Too late!
