Phone of the Day: A Snom D715 Gigabit IP Phone at AceBounce Bar in Chicago
This new ping pong themed bar sports some fancy SNOM IP telephones. These sets are SIP based. I like most things about this phone except for the wimpy auto dial buttons to the right of the dial pad.

When my wife was on one of her business trips a few weeks ago she took a picture of this cool candlestick Phone circa 1930s. This is a classic telephone with a beautiful shape. It’s one I don’t have, but if I did, I am sure I would have it working on an analog port ...

Phone of the Day: ROLMphone 240 Digital Telephone at Bloomingdales Home Store Chicago, IL
Introduced in 1983, these original digital Rolmphones are still chugging away at this Bloomingdales in Chicago.

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7310 Digital Telephone at Indigo Books and Music in The City Centre of Montréal.
We wandered into this bookstore which was definitely more friendly than the local chain. I noticed the store still had these Nortel telephones. This M7310 phone was a model originally released by Northern Telecom in 1988. There is a page button, but paging is strictly prohibited and a separate walkie talkie system must be used ...
