Here's more info on the Panasonic telephone dock:
The Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock-Style combines traditional home communication with integrated home entertainment. By simply connecting the iPhone 5/5s via Bluetooth on the Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock-Style cordless telephone system, users can enjoy the sound of rich, robust music or make and receive hands-free calls from their iPhone, through the phone's built-in high-quality stereo speakers. A built-in lightning connector keeps a user's iPhone 5/5s charged for an uninterrupted conversation or music experience.
The Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock Style cordless telephone system uses the company's popular Link2Cell technology to connect a user's iPhone with the unit's handset via Bluetooth, allowing users to make and receive cell phone calls anywhere in the home using the handset. Panasonic's Link2Cell technology works with or without a landline. To ensure important text messages are not missed, the phone offers a talking text sender alert that announces the name of the sender when a text message is received on the iPhone.
Designed for convenience and the ultimate in usability, the Panasonic KX-PRL262B Dock Style cordless telephone system's easy-to-read display angle allows Facetime video communication on the iPhone while it's docked and being charged. Users can also enjoy the music playback feature by using the handset as a remote control to adjust the volume of the base unit speakers or play, stop, skip, repeat, fast-forward and rewind music on the iPhone, iPad or iPod.
The KX-PRD262B Dock Style phone also announced today provides the same unique features of the KX-PRL262B but is compatible with other smartphones with Bluetooth technology. It allows for smartphone charging via USB. Both the KX-PRL262B and KX-PRD262B are now available at www.shop.panasonic.com for an MSRP of $199.99.
