Konftel Intros 3G Conference Phone

he first 3G conference phone for businesses is being launched by European-based Konftel, the company said Tuesday. The Konftel 300M will use a SIM card to connect mobile offices. It will also come with a USB connection to computers.

"The benefit of 3G is you can use the phone anywhere so you can be wireless, but... you possibly still need to plug the conference phone into a power source even though it's 3G," said Chris Hazelton, research director, mobile and wireless, at the 451 Group, adding that it's not clear if the Konftel 300M uses a battery.

He said the 3G conference phone will likely be used in office settings for sales presentations so other remote workers can participate "and you know exactly the tools you're using... and you don't have to worry about network connectivity because you have 3G." It may also be used by disaster teams working both domestically and worldwide, since wireless networks can generally be repaired a lot quicker, he said, and in that scenario it could be a helpful tool if it has a battery.
