Cloud Telecomputers to Exhibit Glass Platform at Metaswitch Forum 2010

Updated: January 07, 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Telecomputers, a software innovator in business applications and IP telephony, today announced that it will be exhibiting Glass, its unique Android-based platform for desktop business smartphones, at the Metaswitch Forum 2010 in Orlando, Florida from September 21-24.

The Glass platform has been enhanced since its well-received launch last year to include unique upgrades that enable businesses to save money and increase productivity. Examples include:

  • Tap to dial – by integrating contacts into the desk phone, users can locate numbers and place calls in less time. Users can even tap to dial a phone number directly from a Web page or email message.
  • Instant screen sharing – anything displayed on a user's PC, such as a presentation or spreadsheet, can be instantly shared via a Web browser using the Glass platform. Glass accelerates communications.
  • Caller data display – caller data from LinkedIn, salesforce.com, and other CRM systems is instantly displayed, so the user has all the information at his fingertips without having to conduct a search.

At the show, senior executives from Cloud Telecomputers will be demonstrating these and other exciting new features available on the Glass platform. Glass now includes an 8.9" capacitive touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity, and visual voicemail. Attendees will be able to experience the Glass intuitive user interface and test customized versions of commonly-used business applications, such as salesforce.com and Fedex, at booth #16 at the Metaswitch Forum.

"We are excited to introduce Glass to the Metaswitch user community and demonstrate this innovative platform which enables customized, integrated phone features and applications for businesses," said Jim Willenborg, Cloud Telecomputers founder and chairman. "Glass brings the desk phone into the 21st century and renders all traditional methods of business communications obsolete."

Cloud Telecomputers launched the Glass platform in August 2009 and began shipping phones to customers in Europe, Asia, and North America in the third quarter of 2010. Infrastructure vendors, OEMs, systems integrators, and VoIP service providers have enthusiastically embraced Glass because of the benefits of requiring less time to market, lower investment in R&D, and ability to customize phone features and application suites for business users. Because the Glass platform runs on the Android OS, it offers applications providers the benefits of an open development environment, flexibility and scalability, and the ability to integrate their applications with unique calling features and a large user screen.
