snom Expands Beyond the Desktop with Cordless Phone for VoIP

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor

snom technology AG (News - Alert), developer and manufacturer of Voice-over-IP (VoIP) telephones, announced the launch of its new IP DECT (News - Alert) phone for VoIP users, the snom m3.

The company’s first cordless offering, the snom m3 provides an optimal VoIP communication system for the home office, SMB or enterprise, according to Michael Knieling, CFO and executive vice president of marketing and sales for snom.

“Despite the fact that the trend in VoIP is increasing movement toward mobility, the supply of IP DECT phones is fairly limited,” said Knieling. “With the new snom m3, we will be able to provide all VoIP users with the latest in mobility and design, without having to forgo premium audio quality.”

With an indoor range of 50 meters and an outdoor range of 100 meters, the snom m3 is an expandable system with multiline functionality for up to eight handsets – allowing for up to three parallel calls at time. It has a 128 x 128 pixel color display with backlight function and operates for 10 hours talk time or 100 hours standby.

The snom m3 was created by renowned designer, Sebastian Stroschein of Stroschein Product Design, Berlin. Stroschein is particularly well-known for luxury car installations including the Bluetooth handset installed in the Maybach limousine, all mobile phone holders in Mercedes-Benz cars, including the iPhone (News - Alert) holder, and for the handsets in Porsches and BMWs.

“It was a great challenge for me to work with snom, and the task was by no means less demanding than working with the large car manufacturers,” said Stroschein, “I am convinced of the advantages of VoIP, and I look forward to this phone, which – with its high-quality design – will make the innovative technology ‘visible’ on the outside."

Additional features include three-way conference calls, call transferring, music while on hold, call forwarding, and speed dialing with an address book allowing up to 100 entries. The snom m3 menu is easily configurable to meet each user’s needs and allows the option to configure remotely.
