Microsoft goes VideoPhone


Picture030_30Mar04Picture031_30Mar04 It clearly was one of the most amazing sights at the Spring VoN – Microsoft’s different video phones. Most of them had nice video screens, were elegantly designed and were fairly easy to use. I spent a considerable time on these devices, and so did others, for Microsoft’s booth was one of the most visited of all VoN Exhibits. I loved the phones which worked with the ease of regular phones. While clearly VoIP based, Windows CE powered devices, most of them paid attention to the real world needs and incorporated an analog PSTN port. While most of them are not WiFi enabled and need a wired ethernet connection, I suspect it is only a matter of time before they become Wi-Fi enabled. While I could not confirm it, but apparently Broadcom is the chip provider for these products.
