Asterisk with Apple iPad

Apple has release the iPad today - their latest product - a tablet computer with a multi touch surface. It strikes me that this could potentially be used for a fantastic cheap receptionists console.

We've use touch sensitive displays for this type of thing in the past (more normally for Virtual Receptionists - where you touch the name of the person you want to speak to).

Just imaging running a DHTML Flash Operator Panel or something on it?

Drag calls around between extensions, view real time status of calls going on.

The other cool thing is the price - at $US499, it's about the same price as a receptionist's phone and could likely run a softphone at the same time.

Hmmm, well worth a thought - can't wait to see the first native app for working with Asterisk.

If someone buys me one I'll write an app for them - otherwise we'll have to wait till I get one myself :)
