Bittel Combines the Hotel Phone, Clock and Audio Player Into One Device

Bittel Electronics, Ltd. has unveiled its new UNO product line, which combines a full-featured hotel room phone, an alarm clock/radio, and an iPod/iPhone/mp3 player audio interface. The new product line is designed to allow hoteliers in all segments of the industry to reduce the number of devices they purchase and deploy in guest rooms, as well as provide a significantly updated and contemporary design aesthetic.
Bittel UNO is designed for hoteliers who are looking for ways to reduce costs, while continuing to enhance guest experiences through the use of innovative technologies. UNO enables cost cutting initiatives by allowing hoteliers to reduce the number of guest room devices they must deploy. As UNO combines a full-featured hotel room phone with an alarm clock/radio and audio player interface, hoteliers can replace two devices with one: UNO.

Key UNO features
  • Contemporary industrial design: Featuring a sleek, high-tech appearance, UNO is designed to complement other guest room electronics, such as flat-screen televisions, entertainment and environmental control panels, and similar devices.
  • Saves money, saves space, reduces clutter: UNO takes the place of two devices on the nightstand: the phone and the clock radio. For less than the cost of a separate phone and clock/radio with iPod dock, UNO provides the functionality of both devices in one unit. UNO also reduces the clutter associated with tangled cords that connect these two separate devices to power and communications outlets.
  • Convenient audio player interface: The UNO flagship model provides USB and line-in audio inputs, supporting a wide range of portable personal electronic devices, so guests can easily enjoy the music they carry with them on mp3 players, mobile phones, and similar devices. An optional iPod/iPhone dock allows guests to enjoy dock-and-play convenience while simultaneously charging their device.
  • High-end audio performance: UNO features premium speakers and audio circuitry to deliver high-end audio performance, providing guests with maximum enjoyment while enjoying their favorite music.
  • A complete family of solutions: Offering a complete suite of solutions, UNO is available in a range of price points and feature sets that are appropriate for every industry segment and hotel type. Phone-only UNO models (without clock/radio function, multi-function display or audio player interface) are perfect as low-cost companion phones to the flagship UNO model, or in standalone deployments for hoteliers who want to upgrade the design aesthetic of their hotel rooms. UNO touch-screen models present HTML and XML content and room control functionality on a bright, large color display that tightly integrates with various property and hotel corporate information systems. UNO DECT cordless models support up to four remote cordless handsets, linked to a common base station. TrimLine UNO phones are perfect for bathrooms and public spaces, or anywhere space is a concern. All UNO models will be available in both analog (TDM) and VoIP (SIP) configurations.

The first UNO models will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2010. UNO pricing is not yet available, however the product is designed to sell for less than the combined cost of a hotel phone and alarm/clock radio with iPod docking station.
