Japanese telecommunications company Nakayo is preparing an IP home phone [JP, PDF] that features an integrated 7-inch Android tablet. When receiving a call, users can pick up the handset to speak, push a button on the display (the tablet) to make a hands-free call or take the tablet out, walk around and speak into its mic.
Nakayo says the tablet can be used independently, as a web browsing device, and will be suitable for video calls. It will offer Wi-Fi IEEE802.11b/g, 800×480 resolution, a USB port, a 0.3MP CMOS camera, and a microSDHC slot (32GB max).
Mainly targeting businesses, Nakayo plans to offer the system in Japan from July this year. The company expects to sell some 30,000 units within 2 years (price TBD).
