Though many of us ditched landlines long ago, B&O still pushes out cordless phones for those who can afford its designer wares. The BeoCom 5 handles two-landlines plus PC-based VoIP calls, and its portable speaker can double as a charger.

When "docked" on the speaker (or its second, smaller charger), the phone is held in place via magnets. An aluminum scroll wheel control also adds to the metallic chic. It's all very elegant and European, but no word on the price yet. A (not so) wild guess: it won't be cheap. [Bang and Olufsen]
