|In 1956 there is mention of the Gecophone K or Gecophone 1000,
which used an identical case to the Gecophone
but having a more modern handset, with no spittoon and updated internal circuitry.
There is no indication that any of these were sold or produced in any
number. The pictures available were probably field trial pictures and
it is thought that this model was dropped in favour of the new desktop
telephone, the "1000 Telephone". The next Gecophone model, called the
"New Gecophone" was produced in 1959 and was identical to the plastic
telephone used in the UK by the GPO.
Major changes to this Gecophone were the handset, a 4 way handset cord,
One capacitor is on the base plate whilst the other is
squeezed into the body
