The ultimate in designer chic, this handset slips on to the base in a sleek black wall. Fantastically designed phone with all the high-end features you'd expect.
DECT (Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) phones are seldom something to get excited about, but the BT Reveal goes some way to buck that trend, sporting a glassy black finish on both the handset and the stand. When off duty, the phone masquerades as a minimalist timepiece, the time appearing on the back of the handset. This same space displays the caller's name, allowing you to decide whether to answer, or make use of the built-in answering machine. A blue glow from the handset alerts you to any new messages. There is a Sim card reader, so you can shortcut the process of entering your contacts by simply transferring those on your mobile phone, and enough space for 255 names. The phone can also send and receive text messages, although there's only room for 30 messages in the inbox. " The Guardian, Thursday April 5th, 2007
