I'm happy to have a go at helping him but turning to the OCUK hive mind in case it's something anyone's dealt with before. I have a feeling there must be...

    Is there an Android landline phone?

    I'm looking for a landline phone that will sync its address book with Google Contacts and make them easily available. I'm sure there will be other useful features but that's the big one.

    Ive got a fairly decent spec android phone and was wondering if I could install an OS to use it as a computer, for general web browsing, youtube, etc (not to be used as a phone at all) at a spare monitor.
