Phone of the Day: Avaya 1616IP Telephone at Duane Reade, New York City
While working at Walgreens, we did various site visits for retailers we acquired.  I’ve seen everything from Toshiba, Samsung to Comdial in acquired drug stores that we visited. Duane Reade by far was the most advanced.  They were gradually upgrading all of their stores to Avaya IP Office systems with these high tech Avaya 1616 IP ...

Phone of the Day: Toshiba DP5022-SDM Display Digital Phone CIX-40 at Canada's side of Niagara Falls Ontario- Information Centre
Today’s telephone was spotted on a recent trip to Niagara Falls Ontario.  Unlike the majority of Nortel telephones I spotted while in Toronto and Canada, I spotted this Toshiba digital telephone at the Niagara Falls Infomation Centre. This latest version of the Toshiba sets is strangely reminiscent of a Nortel M3900 or i2000 IP set. ...

Phone of the Day: Avaya 1616 IP Telephone at Crate and Barrel North Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL
Gina and I went to the Crate and Barrel on N. Michigan Ave. this evening and I spotted this Avaya IP 1616 telephone.  I was in the store a few months ago and they still had the old school Merlin phones that were original from when the store opened in 1990, so Avaya probably convinced ...

Good Friday Post: The Vatican Telephone System

Good Friday Post: The Vatican Telephone System
Today is Good Friday, the most solemn day amongst Catholics, the day Jesus was crucified on the cross between 1-3 PM on that fateful day. It made me think (not deeply, but a passing thought lol) about the Vatican and what type of telephone system they have there!  What kind of system can the ultra ...

Phone of the Day: Avaya 1408/1608 Telephone at Winners Bloor St. Toronto  
Ahhhhhh, Toronto, one of my most favorite cities in North America.  From the streetcars, to the polite people, to the unique retail stores, to the evidence of Nortel’s huge former existence everywhere, I couldn’t be happier on a visit to Toronto.  It was especially nice to visit Toronto with my girlfriend last week to show ...

Phone of the Day: Cisco 7975 IP Telephone at the Toronto Blue Jays Store at the Rogers Centre 
Today’s telephone was spotted while looking for some Blue Jays merchandise on our trip this past week.  Gina was trying to find a Blue Jays friends shirt, but for some reason he is such a new player they don’t have one for him yet, so we were disappointed.  I spotted this 7975 SCCP IP set ...

Phone of the Day: Telematrix 9600 IP Set at Aloft Hotel in Detroit
The cheap hotel room telephone has evolved into IP telephony!   Telematrix, long a maker of those durable but inexpensive analog hotel room phones, now makes an IP set, the 9600 IP set.  I’ve always considered analog hotel room phones boring and bland, but this one is cool. This set has a pure IP connection, ...
