- an intuitive interface clearly displayed on a full color 3.5" LCD screen;
- easy access to the most essential calling features through navigation keys; and
- wideband audio which enhances the clarity of all calls, making it easier to understand all participants.

Both models enjoy the same proven Aastra reliability and quality.
