Miami, FL – A brief stop at the Digium (www.digium.com) booth at IT EXPO East revealed the following tidbits on the new family of IP phones–
1) The phone was designed and contracted solely by Digium — it is *not* a OEM/white label product.
2) Manufacture of the phone is done in China by one of those usual manufacturing suspects.
3) At the core, there’s a Broadcom MIPS-based CPU.
4) Digium went into the phone business because they said they couldn’t get enough customization out of existing IP phones. OEM-ing/white labeling someone else’s product didn’t make sense because they couldn’t make money and get the features they wanted.
