Man, this gets out before 9am CST tomorrow? :)

Ooma Telo Air....Nice!

Take a look at this:

"In a related announcement, Ooma also will be offering a new Bluetooth service to all Ooma Telo subscribers (previously restricted to premium members), which allows mobile phones to integrate with Ooma. For example, you can configure your mobile phone to send calls to your Ooma handset when you're home, giving you a more comfortable device for talking no matter which line you use. The Bluetooth Adapter sells for $29.99."

It's nice to see and solves one of my original complaints about installation locations. However, I'd still prefer a separate box only option... forgoing the voicemail features and whatnot. A very small box you could install virtually anywhere (hardwired to your network). Add a handset to the voicemail box and sell it as an wired/wireless add-on.

The large voicemail box adds perceived value so perhaps keep offering it and offer the separate box by itself. I know I would have purchased it instead of the Telo for roughly the same price. My Telo is installed next to my electronic closet as I prefer out of sight out of mind. I use my phones' voicemail and if for some reason I end up with voicemail via Ooma I use my computer to retrieve it.

The new wireless adapter is cool, but not cool enough for me to trade my Core for a Telo. If OOMA developed a Scout for the Telo, many of us Hub users would finally make the jump to the Telo. Until then, I will stick with the Hub & Scout.
