A Retro Dock For the Public Radio Lover's Smartphone

It's by no means the first wooden dock designed to serve as a home base for your smartphone, but few are as charming as this faux radio by Areaware, which combines beech wood and brass to create the perfect bedside spot to rest your handset over night.

Available in November, the dock features a hidden conduit letting you stash your iPhone's sync cable out of site, and is perfectly accompanied by Areaware's public radio app which turns an iPhone's display into an equally retro-looking tuning dial. All that's missing is some old school speaker crackle to complete the effect. [Areaware via Chip Chick]
