The bananaphone is the second most popular brand of telephone after the handphone (see diagram right). It is like its rival in that it can be used in place of a regular phone - the downside is that, after a week, the bananaphone requires a replacement. Luckily they can be found in plentiful supply in superstores and local markets, meaning there's always time for bananaphones.
