THE BURNSIDE DESKTOP MOBILE

_40198730_desktopmobile203.jpg A desktop mobile linking a traditional landline to the mobile phone network is being presented at the inventors fair by Burnside Telecom, reports the BBC.

"It means standard phones can be used to send or receive text messages. Connected to a computer, it can be used to access the internet and when attached to an alarm, it can be used to send a text message alert when the system is triggered."

"This is quite a good idea, I can't think of a product like this," says Prof Wolff. "Many people these days don't have fixed phone lines and I'm interested in phones for elderly people - there may be something in this."
