NEWARK, N.J., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic today announced the immediate availability of the KX-PRL262B Dock Style DECT telephone system which is compatible with iPhone 5/5s, iPod touch and iPad mini models with lightning connectors. Designed to enhance the communication experience, the telephone system offers an array of unique features for rich functionality including the ability to play music through the built-in speakers, on-base phone charging and the ability to make and receive cell phone calls through the base handsets. The KX-PRL262B is now available on www.shop.panasonic.com.
The Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock-Style combines traditional home communication with integrated home entertainment. By simply connecting the iPhone 5/5s via Bluetooth on the Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock-Style cordless telephone system, users can enjoy the sound of rich, robust music or make and receive hands-free calls from their iPhone, through the phone's built-in high-quality stereo speakers. A built-in lightning connector keeps a user's iPhone 5/5s charged for an uninterrupted conversation or music experience.
The Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock Style cordless telephone system uses the company's popular Link2Cell technology to connect a user's iPhone with the unit's handset via Bluetooth, allowing users to make and receive cell phone calls anywhere in the home using the handset. Panasonic's Link2Cell technology works with or without a landline. To ensure important text messages are not missed, the phone offers a talking text sender alert that announces the name of the sender when a text message is received on the iPhone.
Designed for convenience and the ultimate in usability, the Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock Style cordless telephone system's easy-to-read display angle allows Facetime video communication on the iPhone while it's docked and being charged. Users can also enjoy the music playback feature by using the handset as a remote control to adjust the volume of the base unit speakers or play, stop, skip, repeat, fast-forward and rewind music on the iPhone, iPad or iPod.
The KX-PRD262B Dock Style phone also announced today provides the same unique features of the KX-PRL262B but is compatible with other smartphones with Bluetooth® technology. It allows for smartphone charging via USB. Both the KX-PRL262B and KX-PRD262B are now available at www.shop.panasonic.com for an MSRP of $199.99.
