The AtariTel division had many wonderful creations in mind
and the Full Duplex Speakerphone was just one of them.
Codenamed "Eagle", the AtariTel division called "Falcon" had
all of its projects nicknamed after birds.
The phone is truly a beautiful work of art. To prove this point
the phone is also on display in the Museum of Modern Art.
Designed by Porsche Design in conjunction with Atari'sown in-house
industrial design staff, the AtariTel phones were stunning in both look and features.
The phone is capable of full duplex speakerphone conversations.
Today we take such a feature for granted, however back in 1984 this
was a feature most telephone company's only had available in expensive high-end business phones.
Other features included:
Variable Speakerphone volume
Flash button for call-waiting
