RTX is introducing the DUALphone 3088, the first available cordless dual phone for Skype that does not require a computer.
The DUALphone 3088 can be used as a normal telephone as well as for calling via Skype. The DUALphone 3088 is a convenient cordless phone which removes the need of a computer when making Skype calls, but a broadband Internet connection is still required for all calls via Skype.
The phone also allows the user to decide whether to make a free call via the Internet between Skype users, or to use the regular landline connection. As well as freeing users from the PC, the DUALphone has a simple Skype user interface and brings nearly all Skype voice features to the handset.
The technology behind the cordless phone is DECT, which is known to reduce interference with other wireless technologies. The phone base station connects directly to the broadband router and the phone line.
With a colour display and an operating time of more than 10 hours of talk time, this new handset offers up to 140 hours at standby.
Consumers will find the DUALphone 3088 at RTX’s distribution partners and on-line, also at the Skype Online Store. The recommended retail price will be EUR 159, incl. VAT.
