VTech's Advanced American Telephones (AAT) subsidiary announced its first DECT-based cordless headsets under the AT&T brand license.
The TL7610 and TL7650 have a range of 500 feet and can be worn over the ear, behind the neck or over the head. They can pair with any 2008 AT&T DECT phone, including multiline models.
AAT will also offer remote dial-pad ($29) and remote handset lifter ($69) — accessories for placing and receiving calls away from the phone's handset or base-station.
The TL7610, for $199, features a digital signal processor, multiline capability, the ability to conference two headsets, and an auto-off function.
It will ship this month.
For $249, the TL7650 arrives in January and builds off the 7610 by adding a five-level equalizer, LCD setup display, a spare battery charger and a USB connection for using softphone applications.
Under the VTech brand, the company announced several new SKUs due for the holiday selling season.
The CS6129-31 ($79) bundles three handsets and features caller ID/call waiting, ITAD, handset speakerphone, 50-name/number phonebook, hands-to-handset call transfer and call conferencing.
A window-box SKU will be offered through Costco for the same price.
A four-handset version (CS6129-41) will retail for $99 while a five-handset SKU (CS6129-54) retails for $119.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
