DSP Group has its XpandR® multimedia chipset in a newly released multimedia cordless phone being offered by Deutsche Telekom (DT). It’s an Android fixed-line “hybrid” smart phone, with both DECT/CAT-iq and Wi-Fi.
The Speedphone 700 has a 3.2 inch touch screen with an “icon-grid” user interface. The XpandR chip set supports DECT and CAT-iq 2.0 , puls Wi-Fi. Applications supported includes HD voice, RSS feeds, email notification, SMS reading, and central phonebook access. A DT release on September 1 says the phone also supports a micro USB port for headsets and a slot for a microSD card.
“Extremely high voice quality” is available for calls “using IP-based Telekom” line, but there’s no details on the technical data sheet here. Instead, there’s a confusing line “IP-based Deutsche Telekom line (standard and universal possible, then no HD voice.)”
Available in November, the phone is designed to used with DT’s Speedport line of DECT/CAT-iq routers/access points. Cost of the phone is 149.99 Euros or you can lease it for 4.95 Euros per month for 24 months.
