Panasonic DECT Phone Boasts Bluetooth

9/10/2009 10:29:55 AM Eastern

CEDIA Expo 2009 Atlanta - Panasonic today introduced a DECT
6.0 telephone system that enables users to transfer up to 600 cellphone
contacts to its built-in directory via Bluetooth.

The two-line
phone, model KX-TG9382T, is Energy Star certified, includes a 40-minute digital
answering machine, three-line conferencing capability, Silent mode, and has a
keypad and speakerphone on the base unit and handsets.

Additionally, the
base unit can be paired with any Bluetooth-enabled headset for hands-free use.

A Phonebook
Transfer option on the phone's menu screen walks a user through the process,
displaying each entry as it is automatically transferred in alphabetical order,
allowing users to track progress.

"Until now,
businesspeople and consumers have had to manage their cellphone and home or
home-office phone directories separately or, at best, transfer phonebook
entries one at a time, which is time-consuming," said Bill Taylor, president of
Panasonic Communications Company of North America. "With the KX-TG9382T, even a
600-name phonebook transfers in just a few minutes, so it's easier than ever to
keep your contacts at your fingertips."

A base unit with
one cordless handset (KX-TG9381T) has a suggested retail of $169. The
two-handset/base station bundle (KX-TG9382T) will be $229. The system can be
expanded to include up to six handsets (KX-TGA939T, at $79 each.)

It will be
available at Amazon.com and major retailers nationwide this month.
