RTX Introduces Internet Telephone with On-screen E-mail and News
RTX is introducoing a new LAN Cordless DUALphone model, with integrated Internet access. The new handset will be unveiled by the company at this year's CeBIT trade fair in Hanover, Germany.

The technology offers carriers the opportunity to take advantage of the expanding VoIP market and reduce the mass exodus of customers from the fixed-line sector.

The new LAN Cordless DUALphone is a session initiation protocol (SIP) device that combines a standard phone connection, Internet telephony and storage for Web content. The base station is connected both to the conventional telephone system and to the Internet through the user's broadband connection, allowing calls to be placed in both channels.

This new handset offers customers on-screen information such as the latest news, e-mail, stock market data, weather forecasts, traffic queues or sports results all displayed in real time on a color display. Data availability depends on the services provided by the carrier concerned.

According to RTX, the functionality is not only an appealing alternative to conventional phones for consumers. The company says it also creates value added for carriers and phone operators who can exploit the combination of phone and Internet access to combat falling sales and diminishing customer bases in the conventional telephony market.

Operating on the DECT wireless standard, the phone boasts as colour display capable of showing 64k colours with a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels. It can communicate with the base station up to 300 metres, while the rechargeable battery provides 8 hours talk time and 240 hours standby.

The new RTX LAN Cordless DUALphone will be available for providers and carriers after the end of CeBIT.
