VTech(R) Instant Success with Instant Messaging Home Phone

Imagine your home cordless phone could be used to Instant Message. Imagine looking at an extra-large, high-resolution color LCD and using the QWERTY keypad to contact friends via MSN(r) Messenger, Windows LiveTM Messenger and AOL(r) Instant Messenger.

Imagine using the the “click-to-talk” feature enabling instant voice (peer-to-peer) chats. Well, Imagine no longer and experience the advantage of an IMing home phone with The VTech IS6110 from VTech(r) Communications, Inc.

Offered on the latest DECT 6.0 platform, the Wi-Fi friendly IS6110 also features the best interference-free sound quality, security and range in cordless phones today.

The 2005 AOL IM Study has indicated that at least 70 percent of all Internet users use instant messaging, with 38 percent of users sending as many, if not more, IMs as they do e-mails. With teenagers spending on average more than an hour on the computer and IM as the common activity, the VTech IS6110 can help free up the family PC for other uses. The phone’s mobility also helps enhance the IM experience. The base unit simply needs to be connected via a USB port to the PC.

“With instant messaging becoming part of the fabric of everyday communication – particularly for young adults – we sought to deliver a product that would make it even more accessible to more consumers,” said Matt Ramage, senior vice president of product management, VTech Communications, Inc. “The IS6110 is perfect for anyone who’s ever wished they could just IM at home without having to be tethered to a computer, or have found messaging on a cell phone to be unreliable or cumbersome.”
