BT Launch Glide, First Bluetooth Landline Handset

More news from Britain today with word that BT is launching Glide, which they claim to be the world's first Bluetooth handset of the landline variety. With a 300 meter (nearly 1,000 feet) radius, the Glide lets you walk around your big house while chatting with your important friends about the goings-on in town.

Since it's Bluetooth-based, you can sync the phone with your PC, transfer contacts and all that jazz.

The Glide comes with an assortment of goodies, like its color screen, copious amount of ringtones and an answering machine. Yes, truly awesome. It's available now for about $330. Act now, though, since the price shoots up about $40 once July 31 hits and then you just might be overpaying for a landline phone, Bluetooth or not.
