Those of us who frequently work from home aren't necessarily anxious for video phones to become commonplace, mostly because that would mean we'd have to make ourselves semi-presentable. Still, we can't help but wonder why this technology has.
Tandberg is one company that hasn't given up hope, with plans to develop a VoIP video phone for the business market. Its E20 is designed to provide "CD quality audio with DVD quality video," integrating a 5-megapixel digital camera above a 10.6-inch display. The device, which also includes a speakerphone and other features for multimedia presentations, is expected to hit the market early next year, according to Slippery Brick. Which can mean only one thing: It may be time to get new PJs.
