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, and the handset is cordless.  It’s a pretty good looking phone but definitely pales in comparison to the 1120E at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids.
