The GXV3175 is an ambitious piece of hardware, and it sort of has to be. It’s paving the way for new products built on the idea that multimedia will become a bigger part of the business communications, that video calling will become the norm and not just a novelty, that touchscreen user interfaces will become the next big thing in the workplace, and that easier, seamless access to social media networks will soon become a requested feature for business hardware solutions. Luckily for Grandstream, a lot of this is happening. It seems every week we hear something about a new video calling solution or an easier way to integrate social media into existing hardware / software. Businesses by the thousands are integrating what were initially consumer focused ‘multimedia’ solutions like tablets into their day-to-day. There certainly seems to be a demand for a new approach to the office desk phone.
