It is nice to see attention to style for the venerable landline phone. While so many of the current cordless phones available consist of multiple antennas to achieve good voice quality and range, Phillips has raised the bar on this with what they call XHD sound technology, all without any sign of an external antenna.

Black gloss, white backlit inverse display and recently announced at CES, only time will tell if form has found function in this new handset.

Planned for availability in the second half of 2007 for $179.99
