Motorola DC 10
These stylish cordless phones have an slim, rounded handset that looks just like a cell phone, right down to its orange display and illuminated event indicator. The Motorola DC 10 has a 100-number phone book, a hands-free speaker phone function, and a backlit display.
Implications - This technological innovation reflects how the cellphone will soon replace the home phone. This will have enormous impacts on the telephone industry, which is why cordless home phones are using inspirations and features that are typically found on cellphone products. Alternatively, cellphone companies can incorporate the benefits of a home phone into their own products.
