Say Hello to Our New Advanced Video IP Phones

Have you ever suffered phone envy in the office? You stroll by someone’s desk and notice that they have a better, newer, cooler desktop phone than you do? Maybe it’s one with a smooth sleek design, embedded video capabilities, and a higher-resolution display. If so, now might be a good time to raise your hand and ask for a new phone. We are introducing two new video phones to the IP Phone 8800 Series, which we’ve built to scale across your organization.

Next week at Cisco Live in San Diego, we will showcase the 8845 and 8865 IP Phone models. The new phones deliver the great experience you expect from the 8800 Series with addition of 720p HD video capabilities — at a great price. The new models also have advanced features that go beyond video, such as Cisco’s Intelligent Proximity for Mobile Voice, which provides telephony feature integration with your personal mobile devices. It’s all about enabling you to work your way.
