No need for a front facing smartphone for live video chat. Why not speak with someone in the comfort of your own home. Leadtek has created a very special phone which will make an appearance at CES 2011. Leadtek works with a Tawainese multi-media service in cohorts with Cloud Services which allow: “video and audio telephony, weather forecast, public transportation timetable, patient registration, medical care, SMS, taxi booking, video recorder, Internet radio, multi-media and music playback.” The phone being showcased is the AMOR8210 Video Phone, with a beautiful modern-day design and multi-media capabilities.
AMOR8210 features a seven-inch, high-resolution touch screen. The housing has a built-in battery and wireless communication function that can be separated from the cradle for tablet-like manipulation. Its DECT handset allows users to make in-room phone calls without a cord. Connecting networking wires and traditional phone lines to RJ45 and RJ11 Ports behind the cradle allows VoIP and PSTN phone calls to be made in an easy-to-use manner.
Even though we’re still not convinced we’d ever need a videophone, we’d be remiss if we neglected to tell you that the kids from Leadtek have announced the US launch of the AMOR8210. Already making a pretty big splash in Taiwan, this bad boy features a cordless handset, VoIP and plain ol’ telephone support (via respective RJ45 and RJ11 ports), widgets (including audio and video players) and integration with surveillance and health monitoring devices. Pretty, pretty, pretty good, if you ask us. Interested? PR after the break.
