The Gigaset Maxwell 10 is a new Android-based HD Video Telephone designed to meet the needs of entrepreneurs and the business savvy. Equipped with a brilliantly clear 10.1” touchscreen display with over a million pixels it could easily be mistaken for a customised tablet, and seems like a logical step for the Gigaset who recently launched two Android tablets. The Maxwell 10 has been heralded by Gigaset as the next step in business telephony, and a quick look at the spec list indicates that this claim has basis with features every bit as sophisticated as the phone is stylish.
What’s so special about the Gigaset Maxwell 10?
The Maxwell 10 offers exceptional flexibility with a modular design, which allows it to be used as panel on the wall, a desktop unit; with a corded or cordless handset (both types can be fitted to the right or left of the screen). The phone runs Android 4.2.2 and is equipped with a built-in Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) with 2-port switch, integrated WLAN client, and Bluetoot. Further benefits include DECT functionality, as well as an SD card slot and USB and HDMI ports.
Business applications for the Gigaset Maxwell
With three in-built loudspeakers (and an integrated microphone at the front and the extra-large sound reflex box of the base station), the Gigaset Maxwell is ideal for conference calls and hands-free conversations. And crisp audio is delivered over broadband thanks to Gigaset’s HDSP sound protocols.
Gigaset’s concept when developing Maxwell was to simplify telephony processes required by businesses for a smoother operation. Conveniently forward several simultaneous calls; integrate your company address book and online directories; and with access to Google Play you can customise the Maxwell 10 to meet all your business needs.
HD video calls on the Gigaset Maxwell
At the top of the touchscreen interface is an integrated front-facing camera, equipped with a status LED that enables video telephony in HD quality (720p/30fps). With the Gigaset Maxwell it's possible to conduct video conferences in HD quality (720p) with two participants; and for larger groups, you can connect an external USB camera with up to 1080p as well as an additional display (via HDMI). The Gigaset Maxwell will be compatible with a host of familiar telephone systems and providers, and supports the SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) standard.
There is no doubt that the Gigaset Maxwell 10 is positioned as a top-range model, and with it's high-spec and Gigaset's reputation for exceptional quality this could be the perfect choice for any growing SME. The Gigaset Press release doesn't give a definite UK release date but we promise not to keep you on tenterhooks any longer than possible and promise an update as soon as it's been confirmed.
