Anyone else think the $50 per handset price seems excessive?

Those are overpriced as well. While other "expansion" handsets are overpriced, at least when someone buys a DECT 6 phone system for @ $100 they will get 3,4, or 5 handsets with that system.

It can't be that phone manufacturers are selling their 3,4 or 5 DECT 6 systems at a loss and they are trying to make their only profit on additional handsets. They are making a profit selling 3,4, or 5 handset systems at $100.

My point was that there aren't any handsets with the telo and to get 4 handsets (to match up with every other 4 handset DECT 6 system that runs $100) it costs $450. I realize that the telo and telo handsets do more, but $450 to get a full 4 handset system is insane.

But it looks like I'm in the minority here.

The $50 price is full MSRP, and will likely be discounted by various retailers once it becomes widely available. There may also be bundles offered that effectively lower the cost per unit.
