VTech just announced the ip8300 infoPhone, an Internet-enabled cordless landline telephone that allows users to check email, news, sports, weather and horoscopes, all without turning on a computer.
Instead of firing up the computer, this cordless allows you to access headlines, weather, and other Web info right on the unit’s color LCD screen. You can even create “favorites,” which allow you to get info like sports scores at the touch of one button.
The ip8300 infoPhone is also one of VTech’s first North American products to feature the Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) 6.0 technology, which boasts excellent sound quality, extended range and improved security.
