We are very familiar with the BT 8500 range of phones and it’s lovely that BT have not rested on their laurels and have brought out, in the BT 8610 Twin a home DECT cordless phone with an even more gorgeous design and advanced nuisance call blocking facilities powered by true call and call guardian.

BT-8610_TWIN-TelephonesWhat BT have done in the 8610 series which is such an improvement is that the set up has been simplified. We did have some people confused with earlier versions so this is a great bonus.

The 8610 phones have a built in answer machine with an hour’s recording time, hands free speakerphone, a 200 name and number directory, 1’8″ colour screen, backlit keypad and advanced incoming and outgoing call filtering. Suffice it to say that these phones do everything that a phone can do pretty much.

What we particularly liked about this phone on top of the above are the large clear buttons, which make one realise just how fiddly mobile phones are and the new design, with a much smaller footprint even on the main base station so saving space and making installation all the more easy.

Guardian-LogoAll in all we just loved his phone, the way it feels in the hand, the way it looks and the great sound. It had an impressive stand by time as well.

So if you are looking for a good all rounder phone with some special functions ( if that is not a paradox of sorts ) then you could not do much better that the BT 8610 Twin.
