Panasonic announces Android-powered home phone
Panasonic may have withdrawn from the European smartphone market more than half a year ago, but it’s back today with a different kind of Android device — a “smart” home phone using Google’s mobile OS. The Panasonic KX-PRX120 incorporates a base station and handset based on the DECT wireless standard. It’s running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on a 3.5-inch HVGA (480×320) display, though the spec sheet doesn’t specify a processor type or RAM amount.
Besides the ability to make calls (obviously), you’re looking at a device with Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS capability, an 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, microSD expandability and a 1450mAh battery. There’s also a 40-minute answer machine.
We’ve seen Android DECT phones before, most notably Archos’ abysmal 35 Smart Home Phone, but Panasonic’s offering seems a little more fleshed out, not to mention better looking. Google Play certification and the use of a capacitive, not resistive touchscreen give Panasonic the edge over the year-old Archos device.
We’re still unsure as to whether the right place for Android is on a landline phone. On the other hand, if the OS can find a home on ovens and cameras, we’re keen to offer Panasonic the good thing about the doubt. Full spec sheet’s after the damage.
