Amstrad unveiled two new phones this week – the Landline 7 corded phone, and the smaller, thinner cordless variant the Landline 7F.
The 7 is about 1 millimeter thinner than the Landline 6, and the cord has been extended by 3 centimeters. Regarding the new, longer cord “the Landline 7 will be with you wherever you need it to be”, said Sir Alan Sugar. “So long as it’s in your house, right next to the phone cable socket.”
The phone also boasts a new, revamped speaker system, which Amstrad have dubbed the “EarDrummer”. Battery life remains about the same as the previous model, as neither of them use batteries.
It’s another story, though, for the cordless version. “From here on out, you’ll be able to phone people wherever you want”, Sugar continues. “The impressive 4 foot range and ability to surf the web using the cordless version make it the best choice of phone.” When asked if the new internet functionality will affect the battery life of the phone, Amstrad commented that battery life is about 20 minutes, which is more than enough for the average phone conversation.
