The PHIP65 combines both the POTS (plain Old Telephony System) and the new VoIP (voice over IP) services. The cordless handset connects to a traditional landline and the computer via USB port. With this dual functionality gives consumers can make and receive both standard and Internet calls from a single cordless phone.
Designed to work with Skype, the PHIP65 enables consumers to use their Skype contact list at a push of a button to talk to other Skype users globally for free or make low cost calls through skypeOut services. In addition, users can use their regular phone service for local calls.
Expandable up to four handsets, the PHIP65 is based on the DECT technology, providing enhanced sound quality while reducing interference with 802.11a/b/g wireless networks, Bluetooth devices, and other home appliances.
The unit features an integrated speakerphone, caller ID, three-way calling, call transfer between handsets, and large LCD display on handset. The PHIP65 handset also offers different ring tones to distinguish between landline and Skype incoming calls.
Priced at US$129.99 in the U.S., the PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone is available at retailers and e-commerce outlets. An additional handset, PHIP651, will also be available for US$79.99 in mid-December.
