ARCHOS Intros the DECT 35 Smart Home Phone Powered by Android

archos 35 smart home phone

I still remember the first DECT Android / Wi-Fi smartphone prototype by DSP Group we saw back in March of 2010. Well, now we’ve got a real DECT Android phone coming to market for $159 from ARCHOS this September. According to the company’s press release, “[The] phone is a light and stylish home phone that brings users contact sharing with their Android smart phone, MP3 ringtones, caller photo display as well as access to thousands of Android apps, web surfing, emails and video calling.” ARCHOS says the 35 Home Phone is compatible with any ADSL box or phone line and uses standard DECT protocols. In other words it can function as a VoIP or a landline cordless phone. Oddly, there’s no mention of Wi-Fi connectivity. But it’s most likely there — lets hope, otherwise it’s DOA — since ARCHOS is talking up its 720p video calling functionality.

    I hate to sound high and mighty, (but I’m going to do it anyway) I just love how the product demos go out to those who are really not familiar with the product.   I own the seven inch archos A70H Internet tablet which runs froyo (I just love this product) and this works like a champ. Good review, all in all, despite a lack of familiarity with the manufacturers product. Archos is light years ahead of the ipad and the first company to produce an Internet tablet. Imagine being able to check your email or update/check your status on your favorite social networking medium (which means it WILL have wifi capability) or even glancing at the weather app located under your clock app on the same screen. All the information that’s important to you in addition to the monitoring features described above and all of it from your alarm clock in the morning. Nice! Hey, is there any way I could review or even serve as a consultant for a demo in the future?
