Are you a regular user of instant messaging? Would you rather you didn't have to do it while sitting in front of a computer? With the is6110, Vtech has blurred the line of home phone and Blackberry. While there have been cordless home phones that allow you to use your mobile phone with the home handset before, this is the first that we have seen that includes a full QWERTY keyboard and the ability to instant message via your cordless home phone.
One thing to be aware of is that the base station does have to be plugged into a PC via USB, so if your only computers in the house are laptops then this may pose a problem.
