Invoxia’s NVX 610, which I reviewed not long ago, is an ambitious device, tackling various communication and entertainment functions all by way of an iOS host. With the NVX 610 selling for $599, it’s many capabilities come at a price.
Earlier this week Invoxia announced that they have started to deliver their new AudiOffice device. Announced at CES earlier this year, AudiOffice looks nearly identical to the NVX 610. The device is more targeted in its feature set, acting as a hardware dock for the purposes of desktop telephony applications.
Like the NVX, AudiOffice supports cellular calls, one SIP account and one Skype account. HDVoice support remains in the form of G.722 via SIP and SILK with respect to Skype calls. Compared to it’s larger sibling AudiOffice has fewer microphone (2 vs 8) and speaker (4 vs 8) elements.
AudiOffice also acts as a high-quality music dock. Invoxia has produced a video that is a good outline of the target applications.
Offered for $299 AudiOffice is likely to be very attractive to SOHO/SMB users, especially those who are already using Macs and iOS devices.
It’s also worth noting that Invoxia products are no longer offered via Amazon. They are now being sold directly from Invoxia.com.
