Munich, September 25th, 2013 - Superb sound quality combined with easy-to-use Android software and outstanding design features: The Gigaset SL930A leaves nothing to be desired. With its extensive range of features, it offers the ideal landline solution for demanding, technology-enthusiastic people. Wifi, touch screen and flexible Android interface make this device a multimedia all-rounder.
Will I need an umbrella when I step out of my house today? Is there a lot of traffic on the way to work? What are the top headlines currently in the news? In the future, it will be possible to call up this type of information and much more directly on your landline phone – with the guarantee of no dead spots plus excellent connection and conversation quality. Whilst until now home phones could be used exclusively for phone calls, the latest addition to the Gigaset product family has now become a complete communication and entertainment device, thanks to the internet connection and modern software.
Landline meets Android
Its Android operating system and direct connection to the Google Play Store allows adding further Apps to the SL930A. Whether you prefer games such as “Angry Birds”, VoiceOverIP software such as “Skype” or social media applications such as “Facebook” – users can choose from over 975,000 programmes ready to be installed. This allows phones to be fully adapted to your personal needs and can, if desired, be synchronised automatically with further Google services. You can organize appointments, contacts or emails in the SL930A and update them simultaneously on all connected devices, such as a PC.
Versatile application combined with an elegant design
The fields of application are as versatile as the individual needs of users. Anyone who likes reading in the evening, for example, will quickly appreciate the advantages of the built-in e-reader. The latest best-sellers can be downloaded directly from the huge online library and read on the touchscreen. There is an internal memory of over 3GB which can be further expanded via micro SD-card to as much as 32GB, offering plenty of room to store favourite music, videos and images. For undisturbed pleasure listening to music, the SL930A also has a connection for headphones. Apart from personalisation and connectivity, the new Gigaset flagship scores top marks also in terms of appearance. Its slim design and selected construction materials such as a frame in simple polished steel make this phone a true eye-catcher. After all, home devices should also match the individual style of furnishings.
Impressive technology for greater comfort
Gigaset relies on the proven and tested ECO DECT radio transmission technology. This reduces both, the level of radiation and the energy consumed by this phone, which has the crystal-clear voice quality of a conventional landline, allowing you to speak to loved ones for up to 20 hours without the need to recharge.
In addition to all the new features, the device naturally has the common standard functions of a landline phone: A built-in answering machine stores messages of up to 55 minutes and powerful loud-speakers allow hands-free conversations in full-duplex quality. Therefore, the top-of-the-range Gigaset model sets new standards and it has particular appeal thanks to its flexibility, optical appearance and features.
The Gigaset SL930A is available at retail stores from September 2013 at a price of 199.99 Euro (recommended retail price).
