Looking to use the Internet to lower your phone bills? Well, that just got a little easier with the launch of Auvi’s PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone. The PHIP65 offers both traditional landline and Internet calling features from a single cordless phone.
The PHIP65 is dual mode, meaning it works as a traditional PSTN phone (RJ-11) and a Skype-enabled cordless phone. The phone is based on the new secure DECT standard which is designed to enhance sound quality while reducing interference with 802.11a/b/g wireless networks, Bluetooth devices, and other home appliances.
The PHIP65 is designed to work with Skype Internet software thus enabling individuals to use their Skype contact list to talk to other Skype users globally for free.
The system is expandable and supports up to 4 additional handsets. The device features an integrated speakerphone, caller ID, three-way calling, call transfer between handsets, and a large LCD screen which displays your Skype contact list. The PHIP65 handset also offers 10 different ring tones which distinguish between landline and Skype incoming calls. The extended battery life gives you 8 hours of talk time and 110 hours standby time.
The PHIP65 is priced at $129.99 and is available now at specific retailers and e-commerce outlets. You will be able to purchase an additional handset (PHIP651) in mid-December for $79.99.
