Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
London-based consumer electronics leader, Binatone announces the North American launch of the SMART66, the world’s first “home phablet”, under their successful European brand, iDECT. The iDECT SMART66 combines the convenience of a traditional cordless home PHONE system with the smart functionality of a 6 inch android touchscreen TABLET, creating a featured-packed PHABLET at an unbelievably low price point.
Designed for busy families, the iDECT SMART66 is pre-loaded with free apps including GMail, YouTube, and Google Play - enabling downloads of additional apps, games, music and more. For the first time home users can search local restaurants, check reviews, and then place a reservation via a landline phone call all on one device. With PSTN, DECT, Wi-Fi and Smart Bluetooth technology built-in, the SMART66 is ready to interface with the “connected home” and remotely control compatible accessory devices and appliances.
“The iDECT SMART66 fills a key consumer need, replacing the traditional home phone system with a smart, connected, touchscreen command center,” said Dino Lalvani, Chairman of Binatone Group. “At a retail price of only $99, this amazingly affordable device offers both the reliability of a landline home phone and all the features and functions of an android mini-tablet.”
Lalvani explained that, in addition to traditional landline capability, VoIP apps enable users to save even more money by placing long distance calls over the Internet.
“Our longer term vision for the SMART series goes way beyond just offering landline and VoIP calls in one device,” Lalvani said. “Our iDECT SMART phablet will be a means to control other devices around the house such as lights, locks, thermostats, smart TVs, and even video monitoring cameras – making the SMART66 a communications command center for today’s busy families.”
