Android Powered Land Line – iHomePhone 2000

This is a must for all Android phone fans!

Why not have an Android at home as well? This cordless iDECT iHomePhone 2000 is billed as the world’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. It’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 £99.99 and will be out in time for Christmas.
