Anyone got screenshots of Orbiter on 7970 Cisco ?
« on: March 17, 2008, 07:33:37 pm »
Hi,

I'd like to see how it look like before I decide whether to buy it or not...

Has any cheaper phone with similar capability of XML Orbiter emerged recently ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

sorry, my crappy mobile camera doesn't do something better than that:



in my eyes it's the best phone available that you can buy for money..

so the emea list price is about 650$ if I remember correctly. It's not unusual to get prices 30% off list..

I may buy one of these. I found an ebay supplier, selling them for $245US free US Shipping. But it will ship world wide!!!

He only has 25 though. At that price, they will go fast. It seems a reasonable substitute for a Nokia n800, and has dual functions.

Just some quick info for you all!!!

Have a look here - http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/frezza/album/31372/ three screen shots. We have four Cisco 7970 phones in one of our project. The biggest problem with them is not configured Orbiter. There are fix number of buttons and they are not customizable. Our customer wants to press a lighting button, for example, and see a floor plan for the current area. The Orbiter is too small and is too slow. IMHO Cisco 7970 is not so good to control home. BTW it's just my opinion.
