Pingtel Xpressa IP Telephone.

At the time they approached me for Design Services, Pingtel was a start-up technology company with an expertise in the emerging field of IP Telephony. Jay Batson, founder and CEO of Pingtel, recognized the importance of good design, and approached me to design their flagship product, the Xpressa IP Telephone.

Designed to be used in a networked office environment, the Xpressa phone communicated over the internet, and featured a programmable applications environment which would allow the user to write and use custom software applications on the phone. One particularly innovative aspect of the design is the large scroll wheel on the right hand side, which allowed the user to flip through contacts or menus, in a manner similar to an old fashioned Roladex. The phone is offered in five different colors, and has quickly become recognized in the industry as an icon for IP telecommunications.
