Cobra LynxIn this modern age, landline phones are pretty much non-existent or unused in a lot of homes, with everyone choosing to keep in touch via cellphones instead. This has lead to the accumulation of dust on unused corded and cordless phones in those homes. While cellphones are convenient and extremely useful, nothing beats the comfort of talking on a nice comfortable receiver that most landline phones feature. Well Cobra Electronics Corporation has come up with a gadget to breathe life into those old phones again. Called the Cobra PhoneLynx, this handy little gadget allows you to pair your regular phone with your Android smartphone through Bluetooth. It connects to your phone via the regular telephone jack and allows the phone to make calls through the paired device. This means you’ll be able to make and receive calls with a regular phone but using the smartphone’s service plan. Cobra PhoneLynx will also grant additional features to your regular phone – Voice Dial, Message Waiting, Speed Dial, Auto Hands-free, Voicemail, Alarm Clock, Improved Reception and ClearCall noise-cancelling technology. The Cobra PhoneLynx will be available in May 1, 2011 for $59.99. Head here for more details.
