Now this is cool!
Altigen has introded the i-Fusion i-Phone docking station. Check out the youtube video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hd94KbV7Ckk&feature=player_embedded
Paired with an Altigen system, this allows you to use one device and have the comfort and performance of a handset and speakerphone at your desk. The i-Fusion provides:
Traditional solutions require the user to switch calls from their iPhone to their desktop phone in order to use a telephone handset or speakerphone – then back again if the user needs to leave the office.
With the iFusion, business users simply dock their iPhone to enjoy the benefits of a full duplex speakerphone and telephone handset. Because the iFusion also provides power, battery charging and data synchronization, the iPhone truly can be used as the single business communications device.
By runing the MaxMobile client application on your i-Phone and licensing your Altigen IP-PBX system for mobility, your i-phone becomes your business extension. MaxMobile registers with the MaxMobile Application Server, which in turn registers that device with the user's extension. Users will be directed to the MaxMobile Home Screen; from here you can select the various Unified Communications apps including: Call Screen, Directory, Favorites, Call Log and Visual Voice Mail.
Not to favor Apple users too much, Altigen will release the Droid and Blackberry version on i-Fusion soon.
