Panasonic Unveils KX-PRX120 Android 4.0 DECT Phone

Panasonic has just introduced KW-PRX120 a cordless phone (DECT) running Android 4.0 on a 3.5″ display. It just looks like your smartphone, but you can only use it within your home.

KW-PRX120 specifications and features:

  • Display – 3.5 inch TFT colour LCD (HVGA) with capacitive multi touch screen
  • Connectivity – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Camera – 0.3M pixel Front Camera
  • Battery – 1450mAh Li-ion Battery
  • Storage – microSD / microSDHC Card Slot on Handset
  • USB – micro USB Charging Port
  • Phone features:
    • Incoming/Outgoing Call Barring to help minimise unwanted or nuisance calls
    • Caller ID, Caller ID memory
    • Answering Machine (40min)
    • Key Finder accessory (Optional)
    • Up to 6 handsets (Optional handset or GAP supported DECT handset) can be registered

The company did not mention details about the processor, RAM, or storage in the device, but it comes with Google Play, so you’ll be able to install (most of) the apps you’re alreading using on your smartphone.

I’ve actually wanted smartphones that can also connect to a DECT base, and switch between DECT and GSM modes, depending on the location of the person I call, but it does not seem to exist just yet. You can already do something similar with Skype via Wi-Fi, but it tends to discharge the battery relatively quickly.

    Not very useful until it can take a SIM card (or two) and route calls somewhat intelligently… A few years ago the mobile networks would have opposed this; they stopped Palm putting wifi on the Treo! But with Skype etc on every smartphone, what’s the excuse now?

    Lame duck product…
