VTech launches home phone

VTech on Monday availability of its LS6245 wireless home phone with an integrated digital answering macjine that can connect both landline and cellular calls. At the same time, users can pair the system with up to eight Bluetooth devices, such as cell phones or headsets. Thanks to the speakerphone on the base station or the optional add-on handset, users can have to have two conversations at the same time, with one being a landline call and the other from a paired cellular line.


VTech brings instant chats to landline DECT phone

VTech IS6110

VTech this week contributed to CES with an addition to its lineup of DECT-based home phones. Taking a cue from smartphones, the IS6110 has a full QWERTY keyboard as well as an enlarged LCD that can be used to send instant messages without having to start a computer or shoulder the costs of messaging from a cellphone. The unusual approach works by connecting the base station to a computer through USB as well as to a phone line, VTech says. The digital nature of DECT also provides enough bandwidth to allow voice chats over IM using a button press and effectively creates free online calling without needing dedicated software.
