Butler 500: A Home Phone That’s More Than a Home Phone

When I think of phones, the first thing that comes to mind are cell phones. After all, it seems that many of you are cell phone only now. Maybe it’s because I have so much more going on with my cell than I would ever have on a landline? Text messages, emails, videos, camera…..the internet. Not gonna get that on a home cordless phone. Or are you?

Well, partly. Maybe the better question is would you want to? This concept from Goodmorning technology is a touch sensitive DECT phone that is also part desk clock, part messaging center. I shamefully admit that one of the first things I do after getting out of bed is to check my email, so I could see this type of thing working nicely for me. Wouldn’t look too bad sitting on my bedside table either.
