Panasonic announces Android handset that is actually a landline phone

In a world where landline phones are gradually being replaced by their increasingly ubiquitous cellular counterparts, Panasonic has chosen to release an unusual handset. At a glance, it looks like an affordable Android smartphone, but the KX-PRX120, as it is called, is actually a cordless fixed-line phone.

It offers a 3.5-inch display with resolution of 320 by 480 pixels...

In the Philippines, we have the TelPad from PLDT, a tablet and landline phone in one. It has its own dock connected by a cord like an ordinary telephone. They have 2 models, one made by Huawei and another by ZTE I think? :)

This would be cool for parents to get their young kids who want cell phones. Its cheap, free data bc of wifi, and it can't leave the house so it won't get them into trouble at school. Not sure if it can act as an actual cell phone with text messaging and such which could be a deal breaker for a kid nowadays.

Archos had one of these but I don't think they ever released it.

Good idea. It looks so much like the Galaxy Ace though
