IAX2 Capable Hard Phone From Allnet in Germany

The weekly VOIP Users Conference calls have often mentioned the Chinese made IAX phones, including both their strengths and weaknesses. Jared Smith posted a brief but positive comment on the Asterisk Users mailing list today with respect to a new SIP/IAX2 capable phone from Allnet in Germany.

With a little digging I was able to find an image (seen left, click for larger) which looks promising. Also a link to a brochure on the product web page here. The brochure describes the phone as SIP only, but Jared’s post says it’s SIP & IAX capable.

I’m not certain that this is a new device. With a little further digging I’ve found the phone offered by a VOIP Solutions, a European reseller. for 73 Euro. That’s about $107 USD. Their web site reports the phone as capable of 4 SIP and 1 IAX registration.

Further, Allnet is listed as a formal Digium partner. Perhaps we finally have a higher quality option for an IAX2 phone?
