I got yer FMC right here

A Platinum Circle mega-value reader astutely notes that the new Bang & Olufsen/Samsung phone, while perhaps overstylized, has one interesting feature: it integrates with the home DECT phone's address book via a docking cradle (as long it's also an extraordinarily expensive B&O model). I'd be willing to bet that future iterations integrate more closely (and that B&O won't be the only ones to do this), and if the hybrid GSM/DECT base station is plugged into an ATA, you basically have a BT Fusion-like proposition, but perhaps from players who aren't even involved in access at all.

UPDATE: This article seems to suggest there's a GSM/DECT fusion product coming in 2006.
