Philips VOIP 855

September 2009 • Skype × Philips

Integrating Skype into the home environment

Collaborating with the Philips hardware team in France and Hong Kong, I designed the interface for their VOIP 855 cordless phone and answering machine.

Particular care was taken on adhering to standard Philips DECT phone UI paradigms, due to customer loyalty to the brand. Additional adaptations were made for individual regions such as APAC, EMEA and North America.

Until the original P2P network was sunset, the cordless phone range at Skype consistently produced the highest ARPU across all of Skype's software and hardware clients.
