The Red telephone box is a British icon as recognizable as Big Ben. Although the spread of mobile phones has seen their usage and numbers drop in recent years, they can still be found on many a street in ol’ Blighty. Now patriotic Brits can take the red telephone box with them everywhere they go with the London Calling mobile phone.

It measures 102 x 43 x 21 mm and weighs about 100 grams.
