It was back in January 2012 when we saw Archos’ 35 Smart Home Phone, a DECT-based Android device that wanted to replace your plain-vanilla cordless phone. Now Panasonic unveiled a similar product that also runs Google’s mobile platform, while boasting slightly better specs (than Archos’ product).
However, it’s still not a high-end phone by any means, but I guess that’s not necessarily bad as top-end components would make it more expensive.
Specs wise, the Panasonic KX-PRX120 comes with a 3.5-inch HGVA (320×480 pixels) capacitive touchscreen, VGA front-facing camera (for video calls), Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth, GPS, 1450mAh battery and a microSD memory card slot. We don’t know which processor powers-up this thing nor how much RAM it has. We do know it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rather than Jelly Bean. Price is also a mystery and the same goes for the launch date. Hopefully we won’t have to wait for too long to see this baby hitting our local store shelves.
So do you want one of these? Or you prefer the “classic” DECT phone at your home?
