BEAVERTON, Ore., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VTech® Communications, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of VTech Holdings Ltd. (HKSE: 303; ADR: VTKHY) and the largest U.S. cordless phone manufacturer, today announced availability of the DS6321-3 (MSRP: $99.95). It is the first cordless phone system capable of downloading cellular phonebook directory entries (up to 6,000) using BLUETOOTH(®)( )technology so that users can enjoy the freedom of making and receiving cellular and landline calls with the convenience of a cordless handset.
Taking a cellular call on the DS6321-3 handset offers clearer, more comfortable conversations, as well as better reception and talk range throughout the home or small office. Users also have more peace-of-mind that a call won't be missed when the cell phone is stored or charging in another room.
Up to four BLUETOOTH devices (cell phones, smartphones, headsets) can be registered on the DS6321-3, and two cellular phones can be connected to the DS6321-3 at one time. Operating as a virtual two-line system, the DS6321-3 also allows users to be on a landline call on one handset, while another handset can be used simultaneously for a cellular call. For added convenience, a BLUETOOTH headset can be used for landline conversations.
In addition to its advanced BLUETOOTH features, the expandable three-handset DS6321-3 system features DECT 6.0 technology for superior sound quality, range and interference-free calls.
"At just $100, the DS6321-3 is an affordable communication solution for any household or small office, especially for 'cord cutters' that rely on cellular service," said Matt Ramage, senior vice president, product management, VTech Communications, Inc. "By converging BLUETOOTH technology with the benefits of a landline phone, this system helps users avoid typical cellular problems, such as battery life issues, poor audio quality or dropped calls."
Designed for Versatile Communication
With three handsets included and optional expandability up to 12 handsets requiring only one phone jack (using the DS6301 accessory handset, sold separately), the sleek DS6321-3 makes it easy to answer cellular or landline calls from any room. As long as the cell phone is left within BLUETOOTH range (typically 30 feet) of the base station, users can enjoy clear, comfortable cell phone calls using the handset - up to 1,500 feet away. Users without a landline can still take advantage of the DS6321-3, since all cellular calls made or received on the DS6321-3 use mobile plan minutes.
For hands-free landline conversations, users can make and receive traditional landline calls on the DS6321-3 while using a BLUETOOTH headset, or take advantage of the handset speakerphones.
The DS6321-3 can transfer calls or conference calls between handsets, as well as an intercom system, making it ideal for home or small office environments. Other key features include an extra large LCD with blue backlighting for easy viewing, a digital answering system with up to 14 minutes of recording time and caller ID/call waiting.
The VTech DS6321-3 is available now at www.vtechphones.com and will be sold at BJ's, Best Buy stores nationwide in October.
