Quote from: RobertNYC on December 02, 2019, 08:43:16 AMI wasn't making assumptions, but was asking a question based on the curious absence of the OBI 200 and 202 devices on their website. The Obi page showing the devices sends viewers to Amazon, where I had already mentioned seeing the Poly branded 200 for sale, as well as the Obi branded 202. The NewEgg site shows the Poly branded 202 as "out of stock." Again, only the Poly branded 200 and the Obi branded 202 are available. I raised the question: could these devices simply be what remain in stock? Perhaps I am expressing unwarranted concern, but it remains curious that on Poly's own site, when clicking on their Products link to VoIP adapters, they display the 300, 302, and 312, but not the 200 and 202. If they want to support and continue these products, it is logical to assume they would be listed alongside their other VoIP adapters. I would say my question, warranted or not, remains unanswered.

Bestbuy and NewEgg are both out of stock. It does seem like there is a shortage right now. Maybe with everyone working from home sales due to covid went way up? I need to get one for a client soon and was expecting to pay closer to $80.

QuoteBut the other half of me often thinks that the current and future market for ATAs is too small to recoup the development costs of new ATAs. The future of VoIP is VoIP phones, not ATAs.
