IP phone runs Linux on ARM SoC

,----[ Quote ]
| STMicroelectronics announced a design win for 
| its new ARM-based SPEAr 300 SoC, which it says 
| drives the Linux-based Snom 870 VoIP phone. 
| The Snom 870 offers a 4.3-inch color 
| touchscreen, gigabit Ethernet and USB 
| connectivity, plus an integrated XML browser, 
| says Snom.



Android comes to landline phones

,----[ Quote ]
| At CeBIT this week, Motorola demonstrated an
| Android-based "HS1001" cordless IP phone
| manufactured by Binatone and built around the
| DSP Group's DECT-compatible XpandR chipset.
| Meanwhile, DSP Group showed its own Android-
| based IP phone reference design based on the
| XpandR II chipset.
| For much of the last decade, Linux-based
| landline-based IP phones made regular
| appearances on LinuxDevices, but with the
| rise of mobile phones, such announcements
| have become fewer and farther between. The
| few IP phones we've covered recently are
| typically multimedia tablet/kitchen-computer
| designs, such as the already defunct, Linux-
| based Verizon Hub, built by OpenPeak,
| OpenPeak's Linux-based OpenFrame IP phone, or
| the Android-based Glass reference platform
| from Cloud Telecomputers. Typically, in these
| designs, IP telephony is just one feature
| among many other multimedia and Web browsing
| capabilities.


Android moves to home phone

,----[ Quote ]
| A COMPANY THAT we had never heard of before had one of the most interesting
| toys at CES, an Android based home phone. Actually, it is a lot more than
| that, almost a full PC in a small box, the Nimble by Touch Revolution.
