PRESS RELEASE

Innovative design combines with superb call and build quality to offer the ultimate calling experience for all budgets – just make sure only friends and family have your home number!

Philips will continue with its strategy of using style and quality to revive the popularity of the DECT phone with the addition of two new models - the M1 and M3 - to the existing three-model Design Range.

All of the models focus on being both better to look at and all-round that bit nicer to use.
