Does the home phone have a future?
The first means of communication were mechanical devices, the operation of which was based on the propagation of sound in the air, or other physical means, in contrast to which, electrical devices use electromagnetic signals. In 1849-1854. Charles Boursel developed the idea of telephoning. Sh. Bursel was the first to use the word "telephone". Some time ago, the phone in the house was exotic. Later, the presence of a landline phone became the norm, even in small towns. Now the lack of a landline phone in the apartment, few people are embarrassed.

So the Swiss company Swissvoice released a phone called ePure, the main advantage of which is its appearance: the handsets and base are made in a hollow case, they look more like frames than traditional phone parts. At the same time, the company claims that all phones are assembled by hand, which is an indisputable guarantee of high quality. Summing up, we can safely say,
