When it comes to the Android operating system, the number of devices that it runs on are pretty vast. Majority of these would comprise of smartphones as well as tablets, but this does not mean that other kinds of hardware around the home are exempt – the smart TV is one of them, while Google’s recently introduced Chromecast too, falls under the Android category in some way. How about the humble home phone? Panasonic seems to have a soft spot for this particular piece of consumer electronics, having announced the Panasonic KX-PRX120, which is a home phone that runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and accompanied by a 3.5” touchscreen display. This is not the first of its kind, and I don’t think it will be the last, either.
Basically, you can say that the Panasonic KX-PRX120 sports all the basic features of an Android device, although it is far more suitable for use around the house – and not on the move. It happens to be a digital cordless (DECT) phone that boasts of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS capabilities, in addition to a VGA camera in front that enables you to perform video calls. Other hardware specifications include a microSD memory card slot, a micro USB charging port, and a 1450mAh battery.
