snom 300 SIP/Lync Compatible: The Cheapest SIP Phone in the World Series - Part 2
This phone is the lowest cost deskphone from snom. It really stands out from the crowd of SIP phones in general because it is not only a SIP phone but also Lync compatible deskphone! And all that for $129 MSRP. It has the enterprise features too: POE, 10/100 switch, HD audio ready (you buy the handset ;-), 6 programmable buttons/lights (count 4 or 5 if you subtract the 1 or 2 you HAVE to have for a conversation.), a speakerphone, and even 3 way conference call via the phone. (if you have the right buttons assigned).
I really think snom is providing a great segway into the UC world with their well positioned handsets. Buy snom deskphones and get their free snom ONE phonesystem (Windows/Linux/Mac) for free now and be ready for the Lync Server revolution when you can afford it. (and it is just a matter of time before people are buying Lync instead of phone systems--EVEN FOR SMB!)
