An Eighties Phone so Advanced, it can even tell Time

I spotted a Universal Intelli-Phone last week at a flea market. They were selling it for $22, which I was not sure was reasonable, since I had not seen one before. I came home and did a little research and I was pretty impressed with what I read about the phone (and the very high price I saw online). So I went back to try to pick one up, but a smart retro consumer scooped it up and will probably be selling in on eBay very soon at a much higher price.

Oh, well another thing to add to my retro shopping list.

    I want one that talks back to me.
    “Sir, there was a call this afternoon from…Sir? SIR! I AM TALKING TO YOU!”
