RTX introduces Jacob Jensen-designed T80 home phone
Home phones have always been pretty dull affairs, but things could be changing. After the launch of the Colombo Two, there’s another designer phone on the horizon – the RTX T80 DECT telephone.
It’s the work of leading Danish designer Jacob Jensen and if you think it looks like a Bang & Olufsen, then you’ll be right – Jensen is best known for his B&O work. For your money, you get ‘superior’ sound quality with adjustable ringer volume, bass and treble, seven polyphonic ‘designer’ ring tones unique to the phone, a range of up to 50m indoors and 300m outdoors and a smooth menu-driven interface.
Sold with a choice of coloured backs, the T80 will sell for £179.95.
