The press release section of Polycom's site is now working again.  The link on various pages at obihai.com and obitalk.com is functional.

Polycom branding* now at the top of the Dashboard pages.

(* I don't mean the "Polycom Announces Agreement ......." banner as at the top of these forum pages.)

I'm more concerned that the Obi line retains it's versatility (underused though it may be) compared to other products in the market. That's what originally drew me in. Google Voice was just a bonus.

Based on my conversations with the Polycom (former Obihai) execs, they aren't dropping any "legacy Obihai" features.  In other words, if you are referring to the various expert-mode settings, there is no plan to get rid of them.  I expect that you will see some "re-branded" products soon, meaning cosmetic changes to the logos and plastic casing colors, but the same or newer-revision-level hardware guts inside, using the same XML settings.

I posted this elsewhere, I think, but the names have changed like this:

Obihai --> Polycom
OBi products -->OBiTALK products

So, they are retiring the "Obihai" and "OBi" branding.
