Panasonic has announced in the UK an interesting DECT cordless home phone. My friend, who runs a small Fort Collins computer support business has been playing with it all day – and his summarized review is that it’s “Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Panasonic’s KX-PRX120 is basically a DECT smartphone for your home. Other than working as an ordinary cordless home phone, it also provides access to Google Play store for applications, games and access to social networks. With built-in front-facing 0.3 Megapixel camera, you can even use it a a video phone for video communication via Skype.”
The KX-PRX120 has a hardware specs similar to an en entry-level smartphone. It features a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen and supports GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. There is a microSD/SDHC card slot for storage expansion, and it will come with an answering machine. Up to six handsets can be added to the system. No words yet on availability and pricing.
