Invoxia NVX 610 Desktop Phone

Desktop phones usually aren't very interesting -- after all, everyone has a mobile phone these days, so what's the point? But French technology startup Invoxia has made a compelling case with its new NVX 610, which uses an iPhone, iPod touch or even an iPad as its control interface. Simply plug in your Apple device and you can start making VoIP calls (rather than calls through your wireless carrier network). The device also merges your mobile phone contacts with the desktop phones contacts so users can enjoy one unified list. The Invoxia NVX 610 boasts a sleek design, seamless integration and high quality audio. The desktop phone is currently available for $599.
