A Cordless phone?? yes, new range of cordless landlines from John Lewis

270 john lewis phone 1.jpgA wireless telephone? What is this wonder? Err, yes, we’ve all got mobile phones so the excitement of being able to walk around while talking on a phone has worn off rather.

But for those who want to have a landline – and there are advantages to this retro concept – wireless phones make the whole thing seem a bit more natural and intuitive.

Essentially adding the benefits of a landline – cheaper and more reliable calls with one of the key advantages of a mobile phone – mobility. You don’t have to stand in the kitchen with all of your family there and take an awkward call. Pick it up… and walk away.

Downsides obviously involve poor battery life… and forgetting where you put the handset.

Buying from a brand like John Lewis will obviously help with one of those problems. John Lewis have just released a new range of wireless landline phones.
