Americans are nostalgic for the phone booths

September 29 2005

The reason for the lack of a key element is simple - now the car meant for talking on cell phones. In the United States return booths assumed a mass character at the end of last year - food service employees across the country have taken note of advertising, who made his Chicago restaurant, Boka and the Biltmore Room restaurant in Manhattan, the first to provide customers with telephone booths. Booth in the Biltmore Room inside is covered in leather for soundproofing. To get a better signal passes, a "cell" has an antenna. Talking on the phone can see what is happening in the restaurant through a small window of a wooden door. A study conducted by the Corporation Sprint, showed that 98% of Americans are desperate for a private place for phone calls. And many of the cabin of the 196 million U.S. cellphone owners seemed almost perfect solution: According to polls, 28% of New Yorkers believe a loud noise while eating the most important stimulus. In this regard, it is easy to imagine that those who talk do humbly go to designated places. But the booths appear not only in cafes and restaurants - to meet the need in the silence of the visitors went to Boston Public Library (Boston Public Library and Reading Room of the University of Maryland (University of Maryland). Here, too, there were special booths, adjacent to the conventional telephone. Looking at this, enterprising carpenter in Indiana Reni Dennis (Dennis Raney) earlier this year founded the company CP Booth (Cell Phone Booth - Booth for Cell). It won manufacturing telephone booths, and to date has sold more than a dozen of its products throughout the United States. While some of the "mobility "phone from them is lost, perhaps soon many of us will look for in a cafe looking saving cabin. Just as it is now looking for a toilet, according to MEMBRANA.RU.
