The Premiere DECT 6.0 28821FJ3 has a GOOG-411 button on the keypad, which lets a caller request phone numbers and addresses from Googleâ€™s extensive database without having to speak to a person.
GOOG-411 is a free voice-activated information system, available on any phone at (800) 466-4411. The dedicated buttons on the Premiere series make it easier to search for home addresses and businesses using the service. The base station also has a clock with an alarm and a bright red L.E.D. screen showing the number of pending voice mail messages.
The handsets have caller ID and the system can support up to six of them. They last for 10 days on standby or for 10 hours of talk time on a single charge.
The $100 package, which will be available in March, includes a base station and two phones along with a hockey-puck-size home intercom device that acts as a speakerphone.
