Phone of the Day: Cisco 9971 Wi Fi IP Deskphone

My good friend Raul sent me this pic of his Deskphone from his desk at his office in Texas.  This is a pretty sleek looking telephone and I believe it works totally off of wifi, no cables to the desk??  I don’t believe it.  I looked closer in the photos and it looks as though this is hard wired to a LAN connection.  The handset looks strangely similar to a Nortel T series handset…..hmmmmmmmm.
