Remember where you heard it first – a new color touch screen VoIP phone is coming soon from Aastra.
First spotted at the Internet Telephony Expo earlier this month while nosing around the Aastra booth, the new Aastra color touch screen phone is an attractive extension of the current Aastra product line. Designed with the executive in mind and set to directly compete with the likes of Cisco, Polycom and snom, this newest model is reportedly set to release this October.
Finalized details surrounding the phone are still unconfirmed, but from what I could see, this new model will offer:
- 5.7” Full color touch screen
- Slick, intuitive user interface
- 9 lines appearances, with sidecar support
- Wideband codec support
- Full duplex speakerphone
- Native Bluetooth
- Dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports
- Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Expect to see an MSRP just north of $500, with street price likely to settle in the mid $400 range.
Again finalized details are still not available so all of this is subject to change, but expect to hear more from the VoIP Insider on Aastra’s new VoIP phone over the next few weeks.
Update: This morning (October 26th) Aastra officially announced the release of this phone as the Aastra 6739i,/strong>. For more details about the 6739i, please check out this updated VoIP Insider post or the 6739i product page on VoIPSupply.com.
