San Francisco-based Cloud Telecomputers is shopping around the Android-based platform called Glass. Their unique combination of hardware and software takes traditional business phones and throws them in the cloud.Â
Using an 8″ touch screen, users can manage calls, open applications, and more. The device also boasts HD speakerphone, Outlook support, and Bluetooth sync for mobile phones.
Cloud Telecomputers license their platform to phone and PBX manufacturers and handle everything including design, installing software and loading cloud-based apps.Â The demo page on their site shows apps like Salesforce, LinkedIn, and UPS/FedEx tracking.
This is exactly the type of home phone system we envision with Android too. Put a front facing camera on there, install a few apps for social networking, messages, weather, and sports, and you have a winner. Companies like T-Mobile could do well to incorporate a phone along these lines with their @Home service.
