Android Powered Land Line – iHomePhone 2000
Why not have an Android at home as well? This cordless iDECT iHomePhone 2000 is billed as the worldâ€™s first Android powered home phone, and it seems not entirely sure of what it is.
It sits there with the functionality of a mobile phone but it has its base firmly tethered into your landline socket.
Running Android 1.6, the iHomePhone is a DECT digital cordless phone, with Wi-Fi b/g/n on board, a microSD card slot and a 2.8-inch, 320 x 240, touchscreen display.
You get a YouTube app, a contacts manager (holds 300 contacts), an email client, a picture viewer, an MP3 player and a personal organiser. It also functions as an internet radio and has an RSS feed reader. For those let down by the iPhone bug it even has a clock, alarm and calendar feature.
Battery life is 8 hours for talk-time or 80 hours for standby, and it comes with a docking station that also has built-in stereo speakers. Itâ€™s even got a 14 minute capacity digital answering machine built in.
I doubt that you’ll be able to add apps from the Android store though – but it is a landline phone after all!
Priced at Â£99.99 and will be out in time for Christmas.
