CHICAGO, Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Cobra Electronics Corporation (Nasdaq: COBR) announced today the launch of the Cobra PhoneLynx system, which allows users to make and receive cell phone calls on any phone in a home or small office and eliminate the need for monthly landline phone services.

The installation is easy and similar to pairing a cell phone with a wireless headset. When the cell phone rings, all the home phones ring, and when the consumer places an outgoing call through a home phone, the call goes through using the cell phone number. "The Cobra PhoneLynx system truly represents the next generation of home telecommunications," said Sally Washlow, Cobra's senior vice president, marketing and sales for Cobra Electronics. "With the Cobra PhoneLynx system, there's simply no reason for most people to waste hundreds of dollars each year on home phone bills." When consumers enter their homes, the Cobra PhoneLynx system wirelessly connects their cell phone with the phones that previously were used with the home's landline. They can then use their home phones to make or receive calls using their cell phone number while keeping their cell phone charging in a safe location. Furthermore, by having that location be an area in the home that gets strong cell phone reception, consumers will find that their home phones will perform better in the basement or other out-of-the-way places than if they were using a cell phone, without the Cobra PhoneLynx system, in those areas. The Cobra PhoneLynx also delivers exceptional call clarity by virtue of its ClearCall™ noise-canceling technology. In fact, many consumers will find their cell phone connection will sound better than ever before.
