Commodore PET Returns: as a Phone

If the name “Commodore” conjures up images of clicking keyboards, beige boxes, and blinking command lines rather than buttery smooth ballads, this one’s for you. Yes, that mainstay of ’80s home computing is back, this time as a mobile phone. The Commodore PET–which shares its name with the iconic all-in-one computer released in 1977–might not run Commodore BASIC, but it does feature a customised version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, and a pair of emulators for running old Commodore software. Update: It’s not quite as stylish as the Macintosh phone.
