Snom m3 DECT IP phone
snom technology AG, developer and manufacturer of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephones, today announced the launch of its new IP DECT phone for VoIP users, the snom m3, which is now available on Amazon. Looking at the product shots, it certainly seems very aesthetically pleasing and is snom's first cordless phone offering. No mention of voicemail functionality, which would make this multi-handset device even more killer. Personally, I hate hosted voicemail since you can't screen the call. Though I do like the ability to play hosted voicemail via a web-browser. If a VoIP provider could offer call screening and web-based voicemail access, I might ditch my traditional answering machine once and for all!

In any event, Michael Knieling, CFO and executive vice president of marketing and sales for snom stated, "Despite the fact that the trend in VoIP is increasing movement toward mobility, the supply of IP DECT phones is fairly limited," He added, "With the new snom m3, we will be able to provide all VoIP users with the latest in mobility and design, without having to forgo premium audio quality."

With an indoor range of 50 meters and an outdoor range of 100 meters, the snom m3 is an expandable system with multiline functionality for up to eight handsets - allowing for up to three parallel calls at time. It has a 128 x 128 pixel color display with backlight function and operates for 10 hours talk time or 100 hours standby. Additional features include three-way conference calls, call transferring, music while on hold, call forwarding, and speed dialing with an address book allowing up to 100 entries. The snom m3 menu is easily configurable to meet each user's needs and allows the option to configure remotely.

The snom m3 was created by renowned designer, Sebastian Stroschein of Stroschein Product Design, Berlin. Stroschein is particularly well-known for luxury car installations including the Bluetooth handset installed in the Maybach limousine, all mobile phone holders in Mercedes-Benz cars, including the iPhone holder, and for the handsets in Porsches and BMWs.

"It was a great challenge for me to work with snom, and the task was by no means less demanding than working with the large car manufacturers," said Stroschein, "I am convinced of the advantages of VoIP, and I look forward to this phone, which - with its high-quality design - will make the innovative technology 'visible' on the outside."
You can now buy the
snom m3 on Amazon.
