Ooma Linx™ Remote Phone Jack Wirelessly Connects Telephony Devices to Ooma Telo
TORONTO and PALO ALTO, CA, Oct. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Ooma, Inc., the #1 ranked home phone service in the US1 and leading provider of HD-quality free home phone service, introduces the all new Ooma HD2 Handset and Ooma Linx remote phone jack, delivering advanced features to enhance the Ooma Telo and provide the most complete and affordable home phone experience.
Ooma HD2 Handset
The new cordless Ooma HD2 Handset adds smart phone features to the home phone via the Ooma cloud-enabled platform and taps the full range of features offered by Ooma's home phone service. The HD2 Handset boasts a two-inch colour screen which allows users to see the picture of a caller in the user's contact list when the phone rings. Pictures and contact information can be imported from Facebook, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Outlook and Mac AddressBook.
The combination of the Ooma Telo and new Ooma HD2 Handset provides cutting-edge HD Voice call clarity by capturing twice the voice data to double the fidelity of standard phone calls, for richer, more natural-sounding conversations. The cordless handset offers superior security and range afforded by the latest DECT technology without interfering with home Wi-Fi networks or other home electronics. Up to four handsets can be used with each Ooma Telo.
One-touch voicemail access lets users check messages anywhere in the home and there's an intercom to talk between handsets or transfer calls. The handset's speakerphone and headset port keep hands free for multitasking during calls. Another useful feature is the ability to configure a handset so it can be used as a baby monitor.
The Ooma HD2 Handset is on target for Canadian retail availability beginning November 1, 2012 with an M.S.R.P of $59.99. Visit http://www.ooma.com/ca for a list of participating retailers.
The new Ooma Linx wirelessly connects phones, fax machines or other telephony devices around the home to the Ooma Telo using the latest DECT technology. It also gives users the convenience to install their main phone anywhere in the home if the Ooma Telo is installed in a remote area of the home. For Ooma Premier subscribers, the Ooma Linx provides access to a second phone line without using the Ooma Telo HD2 Handset.
