Archos DECT-Enabled 35 Phone is a Smart Home Phone That Runs Android

Archos looks set to offer a new DECT phone that will run Android 2.2. The device has a 3.5 inch display and has WiFi. Using its browser you’ll be able to visit websites and even download apps and games. With its front-facing camera video conferencing is also a possibility making this a smart home/office phone that you’ll want to strongly consider. You’re also getting 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card to expand with. If you are looking for a smart DECT handset you’ll probably want to keep an eye out for this one.

    Awesome!  I’ve always wanted someone to make a land line android phone!

    • Kris Ray

      Oh no – screen sucks!  - 272×480

        It’s not meant to be a smartphone.
        That resolution is fine for what it will be used for.

          For some people– people who spend most of their time at home, and mostly talk to people via landline or VOIP– this could have been all the smartphone they would ever need. But with those specs, the number of people for whom that might be true is reduced.

          • The_ATL_Guy

            It’s not a smart phone.
            What solution are you comparing this to?
            Are there other phones like this?

          • Aaron Peromsik

            I’m comparing it to sitting on the couch with an Optimus T in one hand, using facebook via wifi, and a boring cordless phone handset in the other in case the VOIP line rings. Or more likely, the cordless phone is just out of reach. If the two devices were one then my wife wouldn’t have to get up to answer the phone and/or send one of the kids to grab it for her.

            I think it’s a dilemma. They need to keep costs down…way down. Forward your voip calls to your cell?

    the screen res is 272×480, it has a 1ghz processor. depends on the price, 80 dollars? my vitality is better

  • fauxfire27

    So assuming that this phone has a better processor in it than what I have in my current android phone, should I buy this for 80 bucks pull the processor out and plug it into mine or should I just go out and pay 200 dollars for a new android phone?

    What countries is this usable in?  It says the frequency is 1.9Ghz, but that could be Europe, China, or Japan.

    • Aaron Peromsik

      I think DECT should be the same everywhere. It is a standard for cordless landline (or VOIP) phones.

  • steveb944

    I’m getting this if the price is right

    According to Archos US:

    “Unfortunately at this time we will not be carrying this unit in the United States at this time.”

    What a shame.
