Invoxia expands desk-phone mobile docks to enterprise

The French company's product for offices will incorporate a VoIP phone

Mobile phones can become office VoIP phones with the Invoxia 610, a device that Invoxia will be demonstrating at the International CES this week.

Last year, the French company introduced the AudiOffice, an iPhone docking station with a wired handset and a set of six speakers for high-powered conference calling and music listening. Putting an iPhone in the dock made it into something like a full-size speakerphone, while the handset let consumers use it like a traditional desk phone.

Now Invoxia has combined those capabilities with VoIP in the NVX 610, a version of its desk phone that plugs into an office network via Ethernet. The company showed it off at a CES kickoff event on Sunday. It's due to ship in the first quarter of this year.

With the new system, workers can make and receive VoIP calls on the wired handset in the unit, which has its own keypad and display, or from an Invoxia app on their cell phone via Bluetooth.

It's a sleek, low, white unit that carries a list price of a cool US$599, which is $300 more than the original, non-VoIP Invoxia product. But it lets users tap into the cost savings and features of office VoIP with the phone they're most comfortable using or have with them at the moment. Speakerphone is still an option, too.

Invoxia also plans to expand the device options on its whole line this quarter by including a variety of dock interfaces for the iPhone 5 and for Android phones. An Android app is on the way to work with phones running any version of Android. There's even a special adapter that lets the user mount an iPad on the back of the device and plug it in via a standard iPad mount. Support for Android tablets will come later, said Pascal Dussiau, vice president of sales at Invoxia.

Invoxia sells its products through Amazon and is looking for other possible channel partners, Dussiau said.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
