Jabra DIAL 520 OC, Office Communications Server, Office Communicator, Polycom CX700, Tanjay
It looks pretty cool. I guess it will all depend on the retail price- which I haven’t been able to find yet. Since I can buy an actual Polycom CX700 desk phone for $450 then I probably don’t want to spend more than $200 on this device.
But, at the right price it is cool. The Jabra DIAL 520 OC is optimized to work with Office Communicator. The integration with Communicator means that you get all of the features and benefits of OCS, but you can have an ‘old-fashioned’ phone instead of using the microphone and speakers of your computer.
For mobile workers it provides an advantage over a standard Tanjay phone in that it is slim and portable. Road warriors can carry this phone in their laptop bag and have an OCS / Communicator compatible phone wherever they go.
Based on the brochure, I like it. Now, if I could just find out how much it costs.
