Avaya drops wireless headsets

Plantronics will still sell models under its own label

Avaya, which promotes itself as a software company, is trimming back even more on its line of hardware with the elimination of wireless headsets to go with its unified communications infrastructure.

Nortel purchase to test Avaya big time

The company says it will no longer sell the headsets that it bought from Plantronics and slapped an Avaya label on them.

Instead Avaya will recommend to customers that they purchase headsets made by other vendors whose gear meets certifications set by its DevConnect program for partners. Plantronics is the only headset provider to gain a DevConnect platinum level status.

The affected headsets are Avaya's AWH-55+, AWH75N, AH450/A, AH450/N, AH450, AW450/N and AH460/N. Plantronics says it will continue to sell these models under its own label and model numbering system.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
