Commodore Telephone made by Northern Telecom
« on: November 18, 2016, 03:47:10 AM »
I won this Commodore Telephone yesterday off eBay.ca for half the asking price. It is made by Northern Telecom. With any luck it should be here next week. $25.00 plus shipping may seem like a high price for it, but they sell to Commodore Collectors for a lot more.

A little information on it can be found here:

That'd go nicely alongside a C64 Mk2 or an Amiga... :)

Yes, it would. My first computer was a Commodore 64. But I didn't have the phone.

Yep, the C64 was one of the first computers I ever used (though for me it was mostly games on a cartridge that came with the thing)... :)

That phone would sit nicely atop the 1541-II floppy disk drive there, almost as though they were made for each other... ;D

The Commodore phone came in yesterday. All dates match 02 83. Even the modular plug matches!
