- Cold Fusion.
- CO2 emissions.
- Conference Calling.
Three of the most intractable challenges of modern science that also start with the letter “C”. For decades, humankind has struggled to fight energy dependence on fossil fuels and radioactive waste products, reverse global warming and the destruction of the only habitable planet we know of, and to get three people on a phone call at the same time.
We can all sleep a little easier now, as Mitel’s UC solution for conferencing has cracked the business collaboration code. Mitel’s MiVoice Conference Phone makes three- or even four-way calling dead simple. Just touch an icon, and dial a number to make a call. Then, touch a second icon, dial a number, and the call is automatically joined. If you want a fourth person on the call, well, repeat the process. No feature codes, no complicated sequence of events, no secret handshakes, combination of button presses or whispered passwords.
Did I mention it runs on Android, features incredible quality 22kHz Wideband Audio, integrates with a built-in browser to web applications, hosts native apps such as Dropbox, OpenOffice for Microsoft Office doc integration, WebEx, and Join.Me, supports an HDMI video output for presentations, has USB connectivity for connecting your PC, features 16 microphones with a 12′ 360-degree audio pickup radius, and of course provides amazing Mitel Unified Communications connectivity?
