Most cordless DECT phones are impersonal objects made from black or silver plastic with minimum design differentiation, however that is not the case with the Colombo cordless DECT phone by Magicbox.
The Magicbox Colombo is one of the very few cordless phones with design and character. Its retro-futuristic line is a clear reference to the sci-fi design of the late 60s and early 70s. The name “Colombo” is a tribute the Italian designer Joe Colombo who created his famous ‘machines for living’ in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
The contours of the angled handset combined with the crystal clear inverse display make the Colombo a real pleasure to use as well as to look at. The Magicbox Colombo features an innovative retro design that combines great looks with functionality.The Colombo is available in a wide variety of bright colors such as lemon-yellow, white and coral.
In terms of functions, this device offers what one expects from a modern wireless phone. It has a large clear backlit display, DECT technology for good signal, 10 polyphonic ringtones, 100 memories, a digital answer machine with a 12 minute recording capacity that can be controlled directly from the handset and signal range of 300 meters. In addition, its base supports multiple handsets, if you have more than one Colombo, they can share the phone line and operate as intercom. Lastly, there is also an ECO function which reduces power consumption drastically but weakens the signal strength while doing so and is recommended only for small spaces.
The Colombo Cordless Phone is also available in a wide variety of different versions, there is a version with a full answering machine, there are twin, trio and quad packages that come with 2, 3 or 4 handsets, while the top series is the Colombo Photo Viewer which is accompanied by a 7-inch digital frame that communicates wirelessly with the phone and shows the number and picture of those who is calling you.
