Inspired by the Australian Boomerang with the idea of less is more, the designer created this masterpiece which can be used as a DECT phone at home, and also be treated as an art piece for home decoration. The gorgeously looking Boomerang by iDect possessed an ultra-slim handset and a perfect arc, which means it is not just comfortable to use, but also an enjoyment to look at.

  • With the use of blue back-lit dot matrix display and white back-lit keypad on handset, not only the user can use the phone while they are in dim area, it can also enhance the overall look and feel for the phone and create a state-of-the-art feeling to the product.

  • The use of ECO mode (low power mode) make sure the phone only uses a very little amount of energy during standby, and therefore increase the lifespan of the phone.

  • There are two things that a great design for consumers product must possess. One is the outlook, another one is the usability. With the integration of handsfree speakerphone, we make sure that the user do not have to put their phone on their shoulder while they are busy.

  • Up to 30 minutes of digital answer machine in such a slim handset. Another example of how design and usability can be integrated into one.
