It may lack the high tech features that send gadge-freaks into overdrive, but one thing’s for sure: the PowerTel M6000 goes one louder than any phone you’ve had before.
This one goes to 11
Billed as the, “loudest, clearest & easiest phone you’ll ever own,” the M6000 lets you listen to calls at more than 30dB’s, with an extra-loud Motorhead-esque ring tone blasting out up to up to 100db of noise.
Designed for people working in noisy environments and those with hearing difficulties, the M6000 sports big buttons and a loud hands-free speaker, and is the only amplified phone with the highest Hearing Aid Compatibility rating M4/T4 in the UK.
There’s also text messaging, a 500-name phone book, Bluetooth, emergency numbers and an interesting “Man Down” fall detector which can trigger an emergency call in hands-free operation.
The handset is provided SIM free for £119.99 from www.silverphone.co.uk, and will be available at the end of this month.
