It looks like various vendors are trying to figure out how BYOD will exist in relation to the the IP desk phone. One thing that I keep trying to figure out is why these tablet/phone converters look like a speaker with a handset laid on top? If they are serious shouldn’t they attempt a more integrated look? (not that Avaya is anymore guilty of this than all the other similar devices)
It’s interesting to see Avaya bring this type of device to the market.
Some things interesting to note
- Media station brings POE
- 2 1 GB Ethernet ports
- 3.5mm headset jack (not supported in this release)
- USB: Apple Lightning, Apple 30-pin and Micro-USB cables
Looks like this device may have been OEM’d by Invoxia as pointed out by @brian_riggs.
