Japanese telecommunications company Nakayo is ready to launch a new fixed line home phone that features an integrated 7-inch Android tablet. When receiving a call, users can pick up the handset to speak, push a button on the tablet to make a hands-free call or take the tablet out, walk around and speak into its mic. This new phone system also supports the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and the Google Android 2.2 OS. What’s more, the tablet also features a web browser, video calls, Wi-Fi IEEE802.11b/g, a 800 x 480 resolution display, a USB port, a 0.3MP CMOS camera and a microSDHC slot (up to 32GB). Nakayo plans to release this fixed line phone in July 2011 for the Japanese market. The company expects to sell some 30,000 units within 2 years. No word on pricing at this time. [MobileCrunch]
