The Panasonic KX-UT670 has caused quite a stir in the office this week, with the handset left out for Gradwell staff to try in preparation for it going on sale to customers at the end of the week. Never has a product caused so much excitement among our staff, and it’s understandable why when you give it a go.

As an Android based system, the handset has the functionality of a smartphone, so you can run Android applications as well as browse the internet, check your emails and view your calendar on the 7 inch colour touch screen. The on-screen keyboard works well with a stylus (or pen lid) but doesn’t support multi-touch, so there’s no pinch and zoom function. You can even plug a keyboard into the USB port and use it more like a PC.

While the Panasonic KX-UT670 is leading technology, and therefore great fun to play with for anyone teccie, it’s also an exceptional tool for businesses. The handset is ideal for hot desking – keep your personal settings and documents on an SD card or USB and simply plug it in. Then you just take it with you when you leave for the day and the handset is wiped clean for the next person to use.

The KX-UT670 has integration with up to 16 IP cameras, making it perfect for a security or receptionist desk. The HD video means you have quality images, and can use it for a door entry system. The handset also had HD voice for beautiful quality phone calls.

Using an open platform like Android enables the use of handy apps to meet your specific requirements, such as TouchDown and LightTouch Reception. The Panasonic website describes an app that allows hotel guests to view a menu and order food directly from the phone, as well as searching surrounding restaurants. For a phone truly personalised to your business, you can create your own application to suit your needs.

The Panasonic KX-UT670 is available to buy via our hardware store or our sales team on:  01225 800123 or email:,  the desk phone costs £473.00 excluding vat.
