BT home phone customers can now enjoy all the functions of a touchscreen smartphone on their landline handset.
The telecoms provider's Home SmartPhone S offers ready access to the internet - meaning family members no longer have to wait for the computer to boot up to get online.
Home SmartPhone S users can link their phone up to their home Wi-Fi broadband, allowing them to access Twitter, YouTube and Tune-In Radio, and download games and apps.
It is also easy to call straight from selected numbers on websites - eliminating the need to input digits manually.
The Home SmartPhone S comes with a 2GB expandable memory, a front-facing camera, an answering machine and hands-free capability.
It also includes BT Nuisance Call Blocking technology, which can shield users from up to 80 per cent of unwanted calls.
Customers will be able to fend off calls from 'international' and 'withheld' numbers, plus 'unknown' callers.
Additionally, they can put the phone into 'do not disturb' mode, and bar outgoing calls to selected numbers, such as premium rate lines.
The phone has a range of up to 300m and sufficient room for up to 1,500 contacts.
Erik Raphael, Director of BT Wi-fi and Devices at BT, said the new BT Home SmartPhone S allows customers to enjoy the features they would expect from a smartphone, combined with the great features of a BT home phone.
"The Home SmartPhone S makes the home phone central to family life again, allowing you to look up numbers online and communicate with friends and family via email, Facebook or calls," he stated.
