New AT&T-Branded DECT 6.0 Cordless Phones in a Store Near You

By Stefania Viscusi, TMCnet Assistant Editor

The new 2008 cordless phone lineup for AT&T (News - Alert)-branded phones has been made available by Advanced American Telephones, a manufacturer of AT&T-branded telephones. The phones can be purchased online at http://www.telephones.att.com/ and at most major retail stores nationwide.

The new lineup includes Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT (News - Alert)) 6.0 phone systems that offer a new level of quality for users and includes proprietary antenna technology to allow for maximum range and interference-free clarity. With this, the user is able to roam freely throughout the home with up to a 190-feet range around or outside the home, according to independent Wyle (News - Alert) lab studies.
"With this proprietary antenna technology added to our DECT lineup, consumers will enjoy an additional 45 percent of open field talk range and a 15 percent better in-home calling range for cordless phones today -- an overall improvement over other DECT phones on the market," said Matt Ramage, vice president, product management, at Advanced American Telephones.
The handsets also include a simultaneous off-hook feature that makes it possible for more than one handset to be active on the same call.
The phone systems are being offered for all budgets and households, and range in price from $59.95 to$129.95 and come with up to five handsets or can be expanded to include up to 12 handsets.
In addition, AT&T has also announced the launch of 3 new systems for the home, small office or home study that include a number of value-added features and enhanced security, to meet the needs of this user base.

The TL74108 and TL76108, 5.8 GHz corded/cordless phone systems, featuring Digital Spread Spectrum (News - Alert) frequency-hopping technology, include a corded base and a cordless handset and only require a single phone jack so consumers can plug in expandable handsets without worrying about a phone jack. Also, with the TL74108, users have a dial-in-base speakerphone, and call transferring capabilities.  With the TL6108, users are provided up to eight handsets, 7-party conferencing, two-line operation and two individual voice mailboxes.
For the home study, a new cordless phone from AT&T, the EL42208, has also been launched; this phone operates on 5.8 GHz analog technology and includes features like any-key answering, on-hook dialing and table/wall mounting capabilities.
