RTX America has created a new cordless phone for your home that is way cooler than anything you have now. It’s called the RTX PORTALphone and it is a web-enabled cordless phone that has a screen to let you view web content. The phone can simultaneously connect to VoIP and standard telephone services, providing impressive flexibility. Separate rings indicate whether it is a VoIP or land-based call. The phone can support up to three simultaneous VoIP calls.
The phone uses the Casabi platform to let you access web content. You can view news, sports, weather, instant messages and more on your phone anywhere in your house. The phone can be easily personalized so that each user can enjoy content specific to them.
The phone operates on the DECT 6.0 standard, which has been newly opened in the U.S. and provides incredible sound quality and reliability. The standard allows for a secure connection for up to 6 handsets.
The RTX PORTALphone will be available early in the second quarter of this year. No word yet on what it will cost, but it likely won’t be cheap.
