Polycom CX500 Phone First Impression Video: El-Cheapo Buttons?

This was at the 2010 Microsoft WorldWide Partner Conference. I was surprised at the phone button and chassis quality--I expected better from Polycom. The buttons felt like a cheap phone at a hotel buttons! The display was very nice with eye catching graphics and Communication server presence. This phone is a standalone phone that requires no PC unlike most other polycom OCS phones.

Currently snom, Aastra and Polycom are the 3 manufacturers that make standalone handsets for OCS or CS "14".

Below is my colleague Wendell and I checking out HP's Communication Server branch office equipment at the WPC2010 expo. Communication Server was very well represented at WPC--it really appears to be up and coming!
