Retro takes a new twist with MildMannered Industries' newest application for the iPhone, called Bakelite. It's available for free download from the App Store.

Bakelite mimics the look, feel and operation of an old-style rotary telephone.
Bakelite mimics the look and operation of an old-style rotary telephone—it takes its name from the plastic resin used to make many old consumer products. Bakelite's retro appeal goes beyond just looks, though: MildMannered has also added rotary dialing and audio feedback. But unlike a real analog telephone, you can delete the last digit if you make a mistake.

Bakelite works with an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone 2.0 software, but obviously will only make calls on an iPhone.
