For 80 years Bang & Olufsen has forged its charter by offering lovers of high-end luxury-electronic products that are rich with bleeding-edge technology, design and functionality. It is in this tradition that the firm introduces its limited edition BeoCom 2 cordless telephone to commemorate the company's 80th anniversary. It is probably more than just coincidence that the telephone resembles an exclamation mark, as its features are on the exclamatory level.

The BeoCom 2 is designed from a single piece of aluminum and contoured to fit the hand and curves of the face. It can be wall-mounted or placed onto a flat stand. The chic communications device comes with four headphone variants and memory capable of retaining up to 200 phone numbers. Its phone-book-replication technology is so sophisticated that it is simple to use. Only 600 BeoCom 2s are to be released with this limited edition. Three hundred of those come with original, one-of-a-kind artwork by Bang & Olufsen's artist/designer Bess Kristoffersen. The ring tone of the phone is an inviting original composition by the renowned Kenneth Knudsen.

Ten percent of the profits from the BeoCom 2 are being donated to VH1's Save the Music Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the quality of music education by restoring instrumental music programs in public schools across America. The BeoCom 2 retails at $1,085.
