Remember the Ooma Core Phone System that was my favorite piece of gear in 2008? Well Ooma is raising the ante with the upcoming Ooma Telo. According to a company press release, the Telo is, "a cordless handset featuring DECT 6.0 technology, high-definition voice, connected phonebook, mobile transfer, speaker phone, and musical ring tones." Simply put, it combines all the great features of the Ooma Core Phone System and service with what should be an excellent sounding wireless phone. Ooma CEO Rich Buchanan states:
I'm pretty excited for the Telo (partially because it just looks cool). I am of the opinion that traditional landlines are for suckers and old people. Ooma has a number of fantastic features and lets everyone in my household -- including people that don't know how to use a PC -- take advantage of the cost savings VoIP has to offer. The Ooma Telo will be available in the first half of 2009. Pricing information has not yet been revealed.
