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.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
