The first intuitive phone for your home
This project's funding goal was not reached on February 14, 2013.
Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
Seeing the project has 77 min to go, i just backed it. I think the main problem was that it did not make it to "editor's pick" since i had to troll through pages and pages of projects before i chanced upon it. Lets see if there would be a miracle.
one of the early backers as well.. n this may be my first backed project which did not meet the funding..
pls do keep us updated when and where could we buy this product at first moment ya :)
I am here in the US and soooo disappointed. I adore this phone and SO hope I will one day be able to purchase it. PLEASE KEEP US IN MIND as you move forward with this beautiful device.
I fell in love with this phone the moment I saw it & was one of the Early Birds. I've been tweeting & spreading the word but with the campaign finishing Friday & we're still £70,000 short. So what will happen now? I'm in the UK - you say below you will release this still I'm Europe - where will I be able to purchase one or will you relaunch the campaign? I'm so desperate to get hold of one of these, please don't forget us Early Bird's that fell in love with your dream. I'd love to do more but I'm afraid I can't get hold of £70k by Friday - unless I rob a bank!! Joke!
I wish you all the best luck in the world for the future & please stay in touch with any news. I guess I'll have to wait a little longer until I have the ultimate 'Home Phone' in my hand!
Give me a call on one & let me know what's next!
With only 10 days to go ... I fairly unlikely this is going to happen... have you thought about resubmitting the project? Or is there anywhere else we could get the home phone from?
Thank you for your support! Indeed, we think that smartphones are great for the individuals, and the Home Phone is great for the household.
Keep posting news as soon as you can on facebook and twitter.
Thank you so much,
I guess I'm a little ahead of the curve. I posted a link to your site back on the 7th of January when I made my pledge. Keep the faith, there are still those of us out there who don't live life with a phone in our pocket, but rather prefer one on our countertops at home instead!
Herve...thanks for the reply. I am in Texas and have been spreading the word!
Thank you for your support. We are really glad to see that you love this phone as much as we do.
We are working on the communication in the US with a partner located in California to reach our goal.
You may know that your voice on this product is a lot more powerful than any article on a website. You can help us a lot to reach our goal. Share the Kickstarter link with all your friends using email, facebook or twitter.
Where are you from ?
We need to raise the founding on Kickstarter to launch the product on the American market. In any case, we will manufacture this product for the European countries. We will see later how we can enter the American market.
Now, the campaign is not over. We really need you to have it founded.
Thanks for your support,
Love this phone!! I am also a little disappointed to see the funding rise so slowly. So the question is, if the funding goal is not met will there be any opportunity to still purchase the phone by other means?? Obviously I really want this beautiful product.
Here's hoping the goal is met!!!
I am a little disappointed that this project is yet to reach most of its goal. You will have to come up with interesting rewards i believe or re-think the price again. I'm sure every one loves this product, its design but they drop off looking at the price.
Hoping that this project will meet its goad and will take a reality.
I thought that it was mentioned that it did have voicemail on it. I may be a little disappointed. I am hoping that the sound quality is great-my husband uses speakerphone all the time due to having hearing aid issues. It's a good looking product, and unique.
To Pisan Kulkaew:
Hi, and many thanks for your question.
About the voice mail:
- if your base station has a voice mail, you will be able to access to it directly from your base station keypad, just as usual
- if your voice mail is managed on your operator server, then you will be able to access it with your Home Phone simply by dialing its number
- the Home Phone base station will not include itself the voice mail
About the call recording, no, our Home Phone will not let you record your calls in this version. However, it is a great idea and we will keep it in mind for our next version.
Many thanks for your support,
Thank you for your question.
We will have a pack equipped with the UK like socket. Then it will work with the Singapore socket. To avoid any error, please specify your plug in the survey that we will send at the end of the campaign.
Hope you will enjoy your Home Phone soon.
Any chance of a voicemail option? Or call recording?
Will this come in a version useable in Asia? I'm from Singapore and our power outlet sockets are the type G ones (BS1363 UK)
The creator of this device got back to me within a matter of 2 hours to my direct question. Shows the dedication he has. You got my pledge and my vote.
Just saw this phone on engadget. It looks really good in videos and hopefully in my home as well!
Amazing project, I absolutely love it! I'm sure it will be funded.
This is a fantastic and intuitive design. I cant wait for your project to kick off
All the best for your project... I like the design...
Can I know whats the weight of handset? and Is this comfortable to hold the phone between shoulder and ear? also does this have any voice mail feature?
If you purchase the early bird special for 54$, will you get the green and black one or is that only for pledging 75$?
Great design! Good luck! I'm sure it'd be successful. =)
Just a couple of questions:
1. Will you provide an international power adapter for the phone? I live in Australia.
2. Can I buy more than one phone with the early bird price? I would like to get 2.
