DECT handsets have, in the past, been developed in traditional ways with voice communication as the main medium and graphics as a secondary and tertiary method. The new advanced ProDECT changes all that. By extracting the best UI from mobile phone technology and combining that with the IT of DECT and VOIP, the results form a new way for staffs to communicate. The new UI is graphic and image based to a greater extent than voice messaging and this has added an exciting new dimension to this type of device. Also high resolution cameras are integrated in the new handsets. It is perhaps too early to speculate how this type of handset UI will progress in the future, but the indications are clear.
