July 28, 2008 IOCELL's Contents Phone includes a built-in hard drive that enables the hassle-free recording of POTS telephone conversations.
Unfortunately, Korea-based IOCELL's webmaster and/or translator didn't do the best job, so we're not entirely clear on the tech specs. We can't tell you how big the hard drive is, what audio format the recordings are made in, or how to get the recordings off the device - although we're presuming the visible USB port is one of the options for the latter. We also can't tell you how much it costs, or when it will be released.
We can however strongly recommend that our readers who end up purchasing a Contents Phone (or similarly capable device) make sure they are fully aware of the laws regarding the recording of telephone conversations in their state/country.
