The humble mobile has a lot to answer for but one thing for which it may be applauded is the fact that it’s now often cheaper to use your mobile to make calls than your landline phone.

But when you’re sat at your desk, why would you pick up your mobile to make a call, rather than the desktop blower? You wouldn’t, right? Unless you had Burnside Telecoms' ingenious little solution.

Styled just like a common or garden office phone, the Burnside Desktop Mobile phone adds a neat stub antenna and the ability to slot in a standard mobile SIM card to the heady desk phone mix.

So you'll be able to take full advantage of the filthy cheap mobile to landline and mobile to mobile tariffs the four major UK networks are offering.

You can also tap out text messages, thanks to an alphanumeric three-tap keypad, which responds in exactly the same way as your mobile’s keypad.

The Desktop Mobile works on both UK mobile frequencies (900 and 1800MHz), so whether it’s T-Mobile, O2, Vodafone or Orange that takes your fancy, just slot in the SIM and start saving wads of cold, hard cash.

And the price? £150 excl. VAT and delivery to you, sir. Find out more here.
