Wow – this is a popular topic these days. Cordless Workz gets multiple calls per day from consumers asking when a 2-line DECT cordless phone will be available. Manufacturers are bent on using market research data to determine that the 2-line market is dead. It may have shrunk a bit, but it’s not dead. In fact, the available 2-line phones on the market have shrunk faster than demand. From a cordless phone manufacturing experience, demand research should require more than reviewing the current market size.
So, is anyone working on a 2-line DECT cordless phone? Yes. Based on what little birdies have told us, we believe that there will be a 2-line model on the market by Q2 2008 (early summer)…or at least we’ll have more details on a launch date by then.
What about a 4-line DECT phone? Yeah, right. We can dream. This is probably at least a year away.
Hopefully we’ll all learn a bit more at the annual CES show in Las Vegas in January…
