SAMSUNG Launches Home Phone with All the Features of Top Class Mobile

(Hannover, March 13-20 2002) - In recent years the home phone has been overshadowed by the features and glamour of mobile phone technology. Now Samsung is changing all that and launching a new residential phone, which incorporates the very latest technology and offers features normally only associated with "top of the range" mobile phones.


Samsung's new SP-R8000 is a DECT phone for connection to fixed telephone lines (for example in the home) but looks and acts just like the latest mobile. A modern design, ocean blue, LCD - the same as some GSM mobile phones - provides a screen size of 128 x 64 pixels and gives the SP-R8000 the ability to send and receive SMS messages. Its variable font means that the size of the characters on the screen can change according to the length of the SMS messages sent or received.


The new DECT phone comes with a built-in ear microphone as part of the standard package allowing calls to be answered while on the move around the home, and allowing the user to carry on with their work around the house. Incoming calls can be indicated by vibration alert or by Samsung's 16 polyphonic ringing which has just been launched with the company's latest mobile phones. The phone's sophisticated sound chip allows it to imitate a wide spectrum of sounds, which means that users can produce highly personalised and true sounds as their own ringing tones.


The SP-R8000 comes with menu graphics and navigation keys for easy operation. The terminal, or fixed part of the phone, which is plugged into the phone socket, can also be used as a hands free speakerphone as well as being used separately from the handset as a baby alarm.


Availability of the new phone is scheduled for summer of this year. It has 200 hours of standby time, continuous talk power for up to 15 hours, a call log for the last 20 missed calls, a phone book for up to 200 numbers, last number redial for the last 20 numbers called and a timer/alarm.
