Don’t you miss cordless telephones?

Since I haven’t had a phone line in my apartment since 2004—and even that was just because I had yet to buy a TiVo with an Ethernet or WiFi connection—I haven’t used one. (Office phones in the professional environment are still corded.)

So the Swissvoice ePure Bluetooth station caught my eye last week. It consists of a wireless handset and docking station for your smartphone, tablet or PC (via Bluetooth 2.0). You can make and receive mobile calls with the handset, whether it’s an actual phone call or something like Skype.

The  BH01i device retails for $149.99 and theBH01u device retails for $139.99 and can be purchased from
