Conclusion: It is the water and drop resistance that make this phone desirable. Shame Panasonic couldn’t have used a nicer, brighter, bigger, colourful screen and upped the general specs a bit. Still, we recommend that you hit this DECT.
Pros: Here’s the DECT handset you just might be able to drop in the bath while on a call. OK, maybe that is taking things a bit far, but it is splash resistant so you could maybe plop it in the sink while you are peeling the spuds. It is also solid enough to survive dropping. So when Aunt Joan rings to tell you she’s won the lottery and you drop the phone in shock it just might survive the fall. Course if you jump up and down on it in frustration that you didn’t win, it pro...
Cons: The answerphone in the base only has 20 minutes of storage so Aunt Joan won’t be able to talk for too long on how she intends to spend her winnings (actually, maybe that’s a plus!) The 1.8-inch screen is monochrome and there’s only room for 100 numbers in each handset.
Summary: Here a home phone from Panasonic that is tough and stylish and it is even capable of working after being encased in ice. I know they do tough notebooks (Toughbooks) but surely encasing a phone in ice makes that tough as well.
