Moshi Moshi......Hello

Talk about a nifty product - the Native Union MM01 Moshi Moshi Retro Handset is the coolest thing since the blue-tooth headset. First of all if you are wondering what is up with calling it "moshi moshi" - it is named for the way Japanese give a greeting when answering their telephones. I can't recall the last time I held a phone to my face that was tethered to something.

The handset is extremely soft to the touch, I can't quite explain what it is made of but it feels like a silicone material. It is easy to hold and pretty comfortable in the hand. The weighted base keeps the phone from tipping over or sliding around on my desk. Now I can type on my keyboard and hold the phone up with my shoulder to have full use of both hands, unlike trying to hold a cell phone the same way that is nearly impossible without dropping it.

I have an iPod Touch and an iPad but I am using it only with my Droid Smartphone. If you have calling capabilities with your iPod products it would come in handy with those as well. Besides looking totally cool, like I am answering the "batman phone", it makes it so much easier for those long cell phone conversations with family members or business calls that make your cheek all warm and makes your hand feel sweaty (you know what I mean). To hang up/end the call, all you have to do is hit the button located on the headset handle.

I cart it around in my tote bag between work and home. It is going to be a work during the weekdays and home on the weekends. You can also just take along the handset without needing the base. I got strange looks when I was sitting in a park on my lunch break talking from a telephone handset that was coming out of my tote bag. One bit of advice - don't use it while driving, I don't think law enforcement would consider this an actual "headset". LOL

Many of my friends have commented that my voice is clear with no static or that "you are sound like you are talking in a tunnel" effect.

In regards to the reduced cell phone radiation, I have a tough time buying into that one. If cell phones were a real big health risks to the people using them, wouldn't you think they would have been banned by now? If that was the case, I would not use a cell phone and so far no health risks have occurred to me from using it.

It looks like a novelty item but it actually is very useful and a terrific product!
