It has been quite a while since we first heard about the Archos Smart Home Phone. In fact, we mentioned it way back in June of 2011. And well, as of this date in early 2012 it looks like those in the UK can now move forward and make a purchase.
With that being said, given we mentioned this so far back, a quick recap on just what the Archos Smart Home Phone is and does seems to be in order. Archos is billing this as a “new generation of home phone” and what that seems to mean is that they are combining the features of a DECT phone with an Android smartphone.
- DECT Phone: all the cutting edge DECT phone features: hands-free, intercom, caller ID, unlimited phone book.
- Full-fledge Android smartphone at home: web, email, contacts, socials networks, multimedia applications, and thousands of applications downloadable from AppsLib.
Other goodies include Wi-Fi connectivity, a 3.5 inch display and a front facing camera. And lastly, in terms of the pricing, those in the UK can expect to pay £129.98 (including taxes) for the 8GB model.
