In almost every field that involves technology the standard expectations of what’s included changes with time. Whether by popular demand, to keep up with competitors or by legal requirement, what was once a new shiny feature only available to few will most likely become the standard.
Next time you are in a car take a look around it at some of the features that have become pretty standard: seat belts, airbags, radios, GPSs, power steering, cruise control, and the list could go on for quite some time. If a car manufacturer was to release a new model and not have power steering or cruise control as an option, if not standard, I think people would be taken back and confused. While the VoIP Phone industry …

Their first ever Android VoIP phone comes in the form of the Grandstream GXP2200 for less than $250.00.

If you’ve used an Android smartphone before, then you already know more about what the Grandstream GXP2200 is than you thought you did.

Over the next couple months Yealink will be releasing several new phones and to use a popular idiom; with the new Yealink SIP-T4X Series, Yealink are really breaking the mold.
What Is It?
The Yealink SIP-T4X series are the latest VoIP phones from Yealink. The series currently consists of three phones, an expansion module and a Bluetooth dongle. The new phones mark a big break from the familiar look of the popular Yealink SIP-T2X and Yealink SIP-T3X series phones with a completely new design.
Part of the new design, one of the biggest difference between the new models and the older ones is the lack of a paper insert for programmable keys. A common feature on previous Yealink phone models the paper insert has been …
Growing up in Northwestern Pennsylvania the first I knew of Yamaha was their snowmobiles, motorbikes and boats. A lot of the kids I went to school with spent their winters and/or summers riding some combination of one or all of them. Later on in high school as a lot of my friends started bands I started to associate the name with drum kits and guitars.
For many years all I knew of Yamaha was their motor vehicles and musical instrument but since working at VoIP Supply I’ve gotten to know a different set of their products, USB conference speakerphones.
Yamaha USB Conference Speakerphones
Yamaha currently offers three different USB Conference Speakerphones with each of them targeted at a different use scenario.
The Yamaha PJP-10UR is compact …

Well, believe it or not, they have! The Cisco SPA504 is arguably our most popular Small Business VoIP phone and has been since it came out in 2009. Not only is the Cisco SPA504 feature rich and sexy, it is pretty affordable too at only $124.99. The SPA504 offers 4 lines, a backlit …
Earlier this month Polycom announced the release of four new Polycom VVX Business Media phones and two expansion modules that work with all but one all of the VVX models. These new models helped to round out the VVX Business Media phone line by adding entry level and mid-level phones. They also marked the latest chapter in what has been a busy year for line. To get a better overview of the Polycom VVX Business Media phones (VVX Phone Guide) and what benefits users can expect from them I sat down with Paul Arens, Polycom National Channel Manager, to talk all things VVX.
VoIP Supply – While many people may be familiar with the Polycom SoundPoint phones, they may not be as familiar …
During 2009 when the world economy was struggling VoIP Supply launched their VoIP Supply Refreshed (VSRF) or Refresh phones as an alternative to new-in-box phones from manufacturers but without the risks and uncertainty of used phones from eBay.
To make this happen VoIP Supply set up a detailed 10 step reconditioning process that each phone goes through where they are examined, upgraded, reset to defaults and repackaged with all of the parts, a CD that includes all the datasheets and manuals and a certificate of Refreshness signed by the VoIP Supply employee who Refreshed the phone. Additionally each phone comes with a six month Plus 6 Warranty that can be extended to 1 year for a small fee.
Earlier this year Nate Martin asked if …
