VTech today announced shipments of the first cordless phone system with instant messaging (IM) using a QWERTY keypad. In addition to its traditional landline capabilities, the VTech IS6110 offers free access to MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger. The base unit simply needs to be connected via a USB port to the PC. Thanks to its extra-large, high-resolution color LCD and full keypad, the VTech IS6110 enables users to easily read messages and text multiple buddies simultaneously. Additionally, the click-to-talk feature enables instant voice (peer-to-peer) chats with friends. Offered on the latest DECT 6.0 platform, the Wi-Fi friendly IS6110 also features the best interference-free sound quality, security and range in cordless phones today.
You can also personalize ring tones by recording directly from PC or stereo equipment (mp3, CD, etc.) or choose from 17 “real” musical ring tones preset into the phone. Available now at vtechphones.com and Best Buy retail stores (USA), the VTech IS6110 provides the ultimate wireless freedom to enjoy this popular form of communication anywhere in the home.
