Panasonic Link-To-Cell Telephone Receives 2011 Electronic House Product of the Year Award

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) - Panasonic, the leading brand of cordless home telephones worldwide,* today announced that Electronic House Magazine has honored the Panasonic KX-TG6582 Link-To-Cell® telephone with the "2011 Product of the Year" award recognition. The Panasonic Link-To-Cell Bluetooth convergence system was selected as the most innovative "Mobile Devices & Accessories" product for enhancing mobile and home communications. 

Covering 35 different categories, the winning entries were chosen by a panel of industry experts, integrators and the editors of Electronic House. Judging criteria for the Electronic House 2011 Product of the Year Awards include creativity, innovation, incorporated equipment, obstacles overcome, aesthetics, and lifestyle benefits. This marks the second year in a row that a Panasonic telephone has been selected by Electronic House for an award of excellence. 

The ultimate cell phone accessory, Panasonic's KX-TG6582 Link-To-Cell system merges cell phone with home phone convenience and superior sound quality. Simply place the Link-To-Cell base unit wherever cell service is strongest and leave the cell phone charging nearby, then make and receive cell phone calls using Panasonic handsets located anywhere in the home. It is a solution for both "cord cutters" who depend on their cell phones for telephony and those who prefer landlines because the Link-To-Cell works with or without a landline. From the business owner, who needs round-the-clock communications with clients -- to parents awaiting a call from a college student, Link-To-Cell solves the problem of missed cell calls at home. Users also never have to worry that their cell phone is in another room and they won't hear it ring or get to an inbound call in time.

"We're honored to receive the 2011 Product of the Year Award from Electronic House for the Link-To-Cell telephone," said Bill Taylor, president of Panasonic System Networks Company of America. "This prestigious award recognizes Panasonic's commitment to providing high-quality, convenient features that customers demand the most -- especially in today's mobile society."

The Panasonic's KX-TG6582 features Panasonic's proprietary DECT 6.0 PLUS® technology, which increases the signal correction rate by 80 times compared to standard DECT 6.0, resulting in crystal clear sound. Additionally, Link-To-Cell keeps most frequently dialed numbers at a caller's fingertips by transferring cell contacts to the base unit. Contacts are transferred to each handset in minutes. Other benefits include Talking Caller ID, which announces caller ID information between rings, and Intelligent ECO mode, which lowers handset power consumption when used near a base unit.
