Binatone iHomePhone - domestic phone meets Android smartphone


Here's an interesting (and unusual) product, the Binatone iHomePhone, which you might just mistake for a mobile smartphone.

Billed as the world's first Android-powered home phone, it runs Google's Android 1.6 operating system, but is actually a DECT digital cordless home phone. But with Wi-Fi built in, as well as an a microSD card slot and 2.8-inch touchscreen display, it will double up to access the web and all those apps using your home network. Indeed, a YouTube app, a contacts manager, an email client, a picture viewer, an MP3 player and a personal organiser come pre-loaded.

Sold with a docking station that also has built-in stereo speakers, it will be available in the coming weeks for £99.99.
