A cordless phone is a kind of portable telephone that replaces coiled wire of the traditional landline phone with wireless radio technology. While the contemporary mobile phone can be carried anywhere, the cordless phone can only cover a distance as far as the handset can communicate with its base unit, which is usually a few hundred feet. But the meek cordless phone is seeking to adapt to the huge demands of the rapidly progressing communication scenario with the latest Personal Handy-phone System (PHS) and Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) technology. PHS and DECT empowered cordless phones offer advanced features such as data transfer and limited international roaming, making the cordless phone a highly valuable option in any household. Cost, ease of use, range of transmission and duration of standby time are essential factors to be considered before buying a cordless phone. Hang up your old cumbersome cordless phone and pick up one of these terrific models below.
