A new landline phone launched by BT in the UK contains the Android operating system.

The handset known as the Home Smartphone S comes with a 3.5 inch touchscreen and uses wi-fi to connect to your internet router to allow users to access all the features of a smartphone – including web browsing, apps and so forth – at home.

At £150, it is pricey for a landline phone but obviously contains a lot more features than a traditional handset.

This isn’t the first landline device to contain Android, others include the  Panasonic  KX-PRX120  and the  Gigaset SL930A, both released last year.

The Home Smartphone S is another example of the cross pollination of Android, which is proving itself to be a versatile operating system. Other products that contain Android include TVs, cars, smartwatches and even fridges.
