Since everything is getting smaller and more compact these days, one wonders why Grandstream Networks is creating stand alone phones (you know those old relics that rang from a kitchen counter and could not fit in your pocket). The idea of a stand-alone phone seems so out of the loop that one wonders why the company produces something that seems obsolete. However the GXV3140 IP Multimedia Phone by Grandstream Networks is not a nostalgic toy for retro lovers who crave all things eighties. This phone does everything you’re PC can in a sleek design that consolidates all your phone and internet needs into one product with exceptional quality.

On top of all that the GXV3140 is capable of handling nine languages (English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, German and Portuguese). For a list price of $249, the GXV3140 Multimedia IP Phone has everything you need and then some which places this product at the zenith of multimedia phones.

The technical specifications of the GXV3140 leave nothing to be desired. Grandstream Networks has provided everything but the kitchen sink when they created this model.
