Xlink cell integration

Xtreme Technology has unveiled its XLink BT and XLink BTTN devices that serve as a Bluetooth gateway for integrating mobile phones into the landline system. The devices work by routing cell calls through regular telephones located throughout a home. Up to three mobile phones can be connected, and each plays a unique ring on all home phones to identify which mobile line the call is coming from. Users can also choose which line to use when dialing outgoing calls.

The caller-ID information is also routed through to compatible home handsets, and users can still connect home answering machines or office systems. When the mobile carrier voicemail needs to be checked, it can be accessed from the home phones.

The BT model is intended for customers that want to eliminate the landline connection completely and just use up to three mobile device connections. The BTTN model combines the three cell phones with a fourth connection for landline service or VOIP adapter box.

The XLink BT is available now, from Xtreme Technology, for $80. The XLink BTTN is also available now, and can be obtained for $110.
