Bluetooth accessory sold outside of subscription
Ooma has introduced a wireless accessory for its Telo home phone system. The Air adapter attaches directly to the back of the Telo box, enabling connection to a home network via Wi-Fi rather than requiring users to route an Ethernet cable. The wireless option is claimed to support the same level of quality as a direct connection.
The company has also announced that its Bluetooth adapters, which had been limited to premium subscribers, will now be available to all customers. Users can connect up to seven Bluetooth devices, which can be used up to 30 feet away from the Telo.
The Air Wi-Fi adapter is available for $50, while the Bluetooth adapter can be purchased for $30. [via Engadget]
