The Codec (Metal Gear Solid series)
The Codec is a communications system that works by manipulating the small bones in the ear. The advantage is that you don't need a handset or microphone - you just look like you're talking to yourself. If the user was wired with nanomachines, he could even eliminate speaking out loud completely.

As a bonus, it had an alert sound that is probably used as a text message alert by a large number of MGS fans.
