Growth of SOHO Market and Increased Sophistication of Workplaces Require Communications Devices that Add Efficiency to Work Flow
New York – More people are working from home, and the emergence of the “Small Office – Home Office”category is spawning a whole new category of products designed to save time and make working easier and more convenient. Recognizing changing market demands, Thomson is introducing an innovative cordless/wireless telephone system (RCA 25110RE3) designed with efficiencies and functionality options to suit this growing market. The system includes a wireless headset and cordless handset, a single charge base for both, and a wall base that transmits the phone signal up to 300 feet throughout the home or workplace.
The RCA 25110RE3 will be available in December with a suggested retail price of $199.
“We are very much aware of the need for hands-free communication in today’s workplace as business managers strive to maintain high productivity levels,” said Lisa Castor, Vice President, Audio/Video and Communications Worldwide. “On the other side of the coin, the average consumer is burdened with ever-growing challenges within the home front that require the ability to roam about the household while carrying on a conversation.”
Thomson’s Communications Business Unit includes a dedicated group for advancing communications in the SOHO category that features a full line of RCA branded products such as the 25110RE3. They include multiline expandable phone systems and call manager products designed to enhance productivity in the workplace. Whether it’s a single telephone or an entire system of phones for the office, Thomson Communications is developing solutions to meet SOHO market demands.
Cordless and Wireless Offer Ultimate Convenience
Extremely light and adjustable for a comfortable fit, the wireless headset can be utilized as either a behind-the-ear or over-the-head model at the user’s preference. The headset is convertible so the user can easily adjust it for placement on the right or left ear. A boom microphone is equipped with a hinge that allows it to be moved away from the face when not in use. The headset includes on/off and volume up/down control buttons for added convenience.
The multi-function cordless handset, designed to resemble a cellular phone for convenience and ease of use, features an ergonomic design that fits comfortably in the hand and against the ear. Convenience features include Call Waiting/Caller ID, Memory and separate Talk and Headset buttons to easily switch calls from handset to headset and back, as needed.
The RCA 25110RE3 ($199) gives users greater freedom to move about while engaged in telephone conversations and minimizes cable clutter. “No jack” technology allows the charge base to be placed anywhere near an electrical outlet and does not require a phone jack connection. The square wall base maintains separate wireless links to the handset and headset from wherever it is plugged into an electrical outlet and a phone jack.
Both the handset and headset rest in a single charge base while not in use, assuring that both telephone units are always ready for operation when needed.
