The KX-UT670 is the executive Android ( 2.2 ) IP phone in Panasonic's line of KX-UTXXX models for the hosted/open source market. This phone has no hard keys. Like some of the other Android based VoIP desk phones we've seen - the Grandstream GXV3175 and the CloudTC Glass 1000 come to mind - the KX-UT670 relies solely on its touch screen for user input.
We've added a new way to configure your Panasonic phones if you are an OnSIP customer. If you are not an OnSIP customer, please check this section in the review of firmware version 00.0032.
In the past we've looked at additional offerings from Panasonic's line of SIP phones for the hosted and open source market and found that while they started off shaky, through firmware updates and listening to the suggestions of their users they were able to bring the Panasonic phones more in line with the market standards.
Having an instantly recognizable international brand sure doesn’t hurt when you’re planning on making a bigger dent in a crowded market. Consumer electronics giant Panasonic recently introduced a new line of corded desktop SIP phones for sale in the US. The name alone might make their offerings enticing to VoIP newbies - businesses that are understandably unfamiliar with SIP phone manufacturers that have been doing this for years.
