Cordless phones ring with same tones as iPhone

Panasonic has announced six new DECT 6.0 Plus cordless landline phones for 2012. Two of the phones, the KX-TG7740 and KX-TG7730 Link2Cell series, let users make and receive either wired or cell calls through their handsets using Bluetooth. The two also let iPhone owners import their cellphone ringtones to provide a consistent ring sound.

This capability is especially helpful if cell reception in a home is spotty, Panasonic hinted. An owner can place the cellphone in a strong reception area and take the call over the cordless handset's local DECT link. Cellphones' address books up to 3,050 entries large can be transferred to to the Link2Cell phones using Bluetooth.

All phones in the 2012 lineup have an energy saving mode that lowers power consumption when the handset is being used close to the base, a talking Caller ID, an LED that flashes when a call is incoming, and a locator to help find lost handsets.

The KX-TG773xS Link2Cell Bluetooth Convergence Solution is priced at $60 to $100 with one to three handsets. The KX-TG774xS Link2Cell Bluetooth Convergence Solution, with a dial pad on the base and five handsets, is priced at $150. Other phone systems in Panasonic's 2012 lineup range from $60 to 140 depending on the number of handsets and the dial pad.
