But I still kind of wish I was living in the UK again, so I could get my hands on the new BT (that’s British Telecom to those in the know)
Glide Bluetooth landline phone. It brings all the fun of a mobile phone to your landline, letting you personalize ringtones, use sms, play games, even sync your conctacts with your mobile. It also includes a built-answering machine and caller ID. About the only thing it doesn’t let you do is leave your house, though you can go pretty much anywhere inside of your house with the 300 meter range (you may need more than one for those palatial LA residences).
It runs about £179 (~$332) and it’s available now. Except to us poor Americans, I guess.
