Look and feel – how would this phone look in your meeting room?
With a unique, almost triangular design that boasts two powerful speakers encasing a stylish and sleek five inch capacitive touch screen display, it goes without saying that this phone would make a fantastic centrepiece for any corporate meeting and/or conference. Coloured in elegant black, the B189 IP is both subtle and outlandish. Somehow its beauty manages to grab the eye yet its small-scale design allows it to easily blend in to the background once the call begins, allowing users to focus on the matters at hand without having to concentrate on tool they are using to communicate with.
What can it do?
Harnessing the powerful subtleties of the human voice and possessing the ability to record and transfer ideas and emotions from one place to another with complete accuracy is the ultimate goal for any conference call phone.

What are our favourite bits?
With a phone that offers so much to users you can probably imagine how difficult it is for us to try and decide which one of the features we enjoyed most. However, if we had to choose one feature that we felt really stood out amongst the rest, we’d have to say that the 360 degree sound pickup that can capture and discern the audio of individual speakers from up to 20 feet away really helps set this phone apart from the rest of the competition,
