Archos doesn’t think home phones are dead, bringing Archos 35 to US


Whenever I go to someone's house and see that person using a home phone, I typically think very little of this person's technical knowledge. I know there are advantages to landlines, but in my opinion, they're wastes of money, since cell phones can make calls very well and do so much more. 

But apparently, Archos doesn't share my opinion. Over the summer, the company introduced the Archos 35 smart home phone. It showed up in the FCC's database last week, which basically means the phone will be making its way to the US soon. 

The phone runs Froyo, and is essentially a regular old Android smartphone that can't connect to a cellular network. It's the cordless phone that can do everything. Inside is a 1GHz processor and 8GB of storage, and the screen is 3.5-inches and is at a resolution of 272 x 480. 

I still think that even this device is a waste of money (however much it may be) but I do think it has a fantastic idea. I know a lot of people who live out in the country who want a smartphone and can't justify the purchase because they don't get service. Would it be so hard to make a base station like this that would serve as a "landline" for a smartphone?
