“The Ericsson HS210 Cordless Screen Phone, unveiled in prototype form last February at CeBIT (Hannover, Germany), represents one of the first home products to emerge from Ericsson's broad vision of 'anywhere, anytime communication' technologies and products. The HS210 is meant to provide a complete cordless communication center for the home — a combination cordless telephone, answering machine, address book, message center, and Internet appliance — all in one compact and portable unit. This, from one of the world's leading wireless communications device manufacturers.”
