Have this Mitsubishi Lumaphone basically in mint condition and it has been sitting on my shelf for quite some time.
It came from a police department years ago which at one time I'm guessing toyed with the idea of using the phone to send pictures with the ability to print
out on the other end with the optional printer that was apparently available for these machines sometime around the release of this phone. They had only used it once or twice and it was boxed and once I acquired it have only plugged in once to ensure it works. I have a product box that is in miserable condition but can include that as well if you like. I'm open to offers, send me a PM. If it isn't sold in a month on here at AA then I'll just list it on eBay. This is the actual photo of the machine I have:

I realize these aren't really worth a whole lot but being the immaculate condition this is in it may as well go to a collector that is interested in this sort of stuff.

Several messages showing interest but no money offers yet. Does anyone know a fair asking price for this?

Wow... I remember seeing those at RadioShack back in the day and thinking, "Huh--that's some really crappy video quality. And like anyone else is ever going to have one of these for me to call them." Such is the fate of so many innovative yet niche technologies. Reminds me of this series of Dilbert comics:

It's worth around $50 if that helps you.

Yes, thanks very much!

Clint, if that is what you'd like for it I'll pass for now - that would take too much of a chunk out of my monthly gaming budget, sorry. PM me if you'd like to talk some more, and thanks for offering the phone.
