The technology would obviously have exsisted during the time of the movie. I was pondering what it would have looked like. Considering what the desktop vid-phon looked like I would imagine a vid cell phon would have looked a bit clunky. Not huge like the old brick phone but definatly not resembling the iphone.

Here is an old clunky phone that came to mind. The vid cell phone would look more interesting I think. Probably have no antennae.


Thoughts?

I don't know about the portable phone SLK...nice idea, but looking at the whole "look" of the film and the various machines/designs in it, I feel that the portable phone would be out of place.
Maybe the walkie-talkie you'll find in the Spinner would be a better choice (fitted with a small screen) Wink

That is awesome. It looks great and I think totally looks like it would belong.

What's the model and brand of that bad boy??

May need to add one to my Deckard desk.

I blame myself for not being clear.

I am not saying this cell would be the vid cell phon. I just posted the picture as that one was made in or around the early '80's.

I was considering what a vid cell phon would look like. I imagine it wouldn't have an earpiece like the one I pictured but it would have a screen.

Perhaps it was a mistake to even has posted the old phone at all. I was hoping people would take what they know of the style and free associate.
