If your anything like me, then instant messenging plays a pivotal role in your day to day existence. So when I heard of the Vtech’s IS6110 cordless phone which they say is the ‘worlds first cordless phone to enable instant messaging using a QWERTY keypad’. I just had to blog about it.
The phone offers free access to MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger. but wait, here’s the catch, the base unit needs to be connected via a USB port to the PC. So if again your like me and are a complete ‘peripheral whore’ then using up one USB exclusively for the base unit, is a real draw back.
It sports a high-res color LCD and full keypad to read messages and text buddies simultaneously. Additionally, the “click-to-talk” feature enables instant voice (peer-to-peer) chats with friends. not forgetting about the actual phone which offers handset speakerphone and phone book directory.
So if you have a spare $99.95 / £50 and are addicted to IM. this one’s for you.
