Rumors are circulating that the deskphone is dead. This is untrue.

Companies continue to make significant investments into their communications endpoint infrastructure; ShoreTel recognizes this and continues to innovate. For many end-users, desk phones are simply the easiest and quickest way to communicate and collaborate in the office. ShoreTel provides a choice.

With the new 400 Series phones for ShoreTel Sky, ShoreTel offers a solution that truly optimizes how end users communicate for work. This is the phone handset for the productive knowledge worker. And customers now have the opportunity for a top to bottom ShoreTel experience.

The 400 Series of ShoreTel phones builds on the current portfolio of ShoreTel IP phones as the first handset series for ShoreTel Sky customers exclusively manufactured and developed by ShoreTel. The new ShoreTel phone was designed with our customers, for our customers. During the development phase, we looked at our phones and said "How can we take the already award winning design and make it better?" So we asked our customers what they wanted in a ShoreTel phone and the result is the 400 Series.

For customers that are considering an upgrade to their existing IP phone solution or a move to a cloud solution, the ShoreTel IP 400 series phones support either deployment model or a combination of both.
