Well if this isn't a strange device for the mobile world, I don't know what is. Behold this Android-based home phone, the iDect iHome Phone. It has a modern Contacts Manager, old school 14 minute answering machine (yet it's digital,) caller ID, alarm, clock, callendar, and a battery that can reach 80 hours of stand-by or 8 hours of talk per charge. Will it take off into outer space for just around 100 Euros? Take a look a the rest of the details and decide for yourself.

Binatone presents this device for landlines with many features normally reserved for Android-powered mobiles. Features such as Wifi connectivity (802.11 b/g), a 2.8-inch 320 x 240 resolution color touchscreen display and a microSD memory card slot. It's also got some apps, apps such as an email client, web browser, internet radio, YouTube video player, and an MP3 player. And of course it runs some unknown version of Android.
