Android goes landline via iDECT iHomePhone 2000
We are used to see or hear that Android has been integrated in various kinds of devices. Today, there is news that Android has been integrated in … a landline phone – iDECT iHomePhone 2000. But don’t get annoyed or confused by the “i” in at the beginning of the name, this is not an Apple product and I’m sure no one could even think of an Apple product running on Android. The “i” is just part of the name of the product.
iDECT iHomePhone is an ordinary cordless landline phone, running on Android, featuring a 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen display running at resolution of 320×240 pixels. It will also have 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi support and microSD card slot. All the standard Android functions are present, too – Internet Browser, mp3 player, picture gallery, video/YouTube player, alarm clock, radio, e-mail and so on. The only think that iDECK iHomePhone will not support is Android Market, but after all, this is an ordinary landline phone.
Using the DECT technology, the phone guarantees that wherever in the house you are, you will be able to make and receive phone calls. Moreover, iDECT has a 14-minute digital answering machine, hands-free speakerphone and is capable to store up to 300 contacts in its memory. iDECT iHomePhone will be sold in Europe for 99 Euroes.
