The DUALphone 3088 features Skype software embedded in the device allowing customers to call anywhere in the world using Skype without the need for a PC.

The DUALphone 3088 takes its name from the fact that it seamlessly serves as a traditional phone as well as an advanced Skype-phone. When placing a call, consumers have the option to dial up using Skype or the traditional phone line by simply selecting the desired method through the phone's highly intuitive user interface.

The DUALphone 3088 cordless handset displays online status for Skype contacts, allows users to play, delete, and send Skype voice messages, and provides easy access to most Skype voice features from the handset, including call divert and call history. The included DUALphone 3088 base station simultaneously connects to a traditional telephone socket and to a router via Ethernet. The DUALphone 3088 supports Skype to Skype, Skype to landline, landline to Skype, and landline to landline calls.

The DUALphone 3088 features a bright color display and an operating time of more than 10 hours of talk-time and up to 140 hours on standby. The DUALphone 3088 base station and charging dock are separate allowing the phone to conveniently reside anywhere in a home or office. In addition, the DUALphone 3088 uses DECT cordless technology for superior voice clarity and security.

"RTX pioneered Skype phones with the world's first Skype-certified cordless USB phone, and now we have introduced the first cordless DUALphone that does not require a computer," said Tage Rasmussen, CEO of RTX. "We have secured our first OEM engagement with a Tier 1 brand for our embedded Skype platform, and we plan to enable additional major brand names with the DUALphone concept on both OEM/ODM products as well as embedded technology licensing in devices such as routers, modems, multifunction printers, etc."
