Phone of the Day: Avaya 9608G IP Telephone with BM 12 KEM Modules at the Knoll Showroom, Merchandise Mart Chicago, IL

As we were trouncing around Neocon today visiting interior design booths and showrooms, I noticed this massive and high tech looking Avaya IP telephone at the front desk of the Knoll Showroom.

What’s interesting is that I am rather surprised to see a business phone in an office showroom.  Many office showrooms have denounced phone systems under the assumption that all offices will use only their cell phones in the future.  This photo disproves that theory at least right now.
