A media phone is a cross between a telephone and PC, allowing direct access to applications and Internet-based information through a large color touchscreen with a high-quality speakerphone. Similar in concept and use to popular mobile devices, the 9670G boasts a large, color home screen that provides one-touch access to people, information and tools. Applications embedded in the device give users useful options when the phone is idle, such as access to maps, a full QWERTY keyboard, weather conditions, calculator, and more. New applications can also be downloaded. The high performance screen enables users to simply swipe the interface to scroll contacts and directories, for example, and eliminates unnecessary buttons for a cleaner appearance. (See photos)
In addition, the Avaya 9620L desk phone has been designated as a PoE Class 1 phone, meaning that average power consumption is only 2.2 watts, compared to similar models that average 6.3 to 12.0 watts. A new release of downloadable software expands their value with a number of features that increase user productivity, personalization and management. Color displays are now available throughout the product line.
