What about the Trio platform? Can you give us an update on that?

Tidd: The third part of that strategy we announced earlier in the year is Trio, which is focused on collaboration. It's the next-gen conference platform. ... One of my subtle messages to the partner community is: How many times do you walk into a conference room and see a Starfish Polycom phone? That's a potential upgrade. There's a huge potential refresh capability. I think the important pieces that partners are evaluating are their on-board strategy, all of our training is Web-based, it's not a cumbersome product to seek authorization, it's a multitiered program based on profitability and the transfer of knowledge. There's some very unique markets that we can play vertically [in] as well as horizontally. We're pretty excited about the opportunity to get in front of the audience.
