Verizon unveils Mobile UC client, helps you not miss your office too much
Verizon Wireless just unveiled a new business tool that lets company employees stay connected with their office even when they are away from it. Introducing Verizon's Mobile Unified Communications Client (or Mobile UC for short) – the service that enables business subscribers to use their Android powered smartphone as if it was their office phone.

In a nutshell, with Mobile UC set up on their smartphone, employees can place calls and answer them from their work number, and the work number is what the other party is going to see as caller ID. Besides, company services such as voicemail, call hold, transfer and conference calls are fully accessible through Mobile UC.

No additional hardware is required if a business decides to implement Mobile UC within its telephone system. All that is required is for the employee's Android smartphone to be configured by the company's IT department, which will be provided with the necessary software tools. In addition, a $7 fee per user is required on a monthly basis.

Currently, the only smartphones that are compatible with Mobile UC are the Motorola DROID X, DROID X2, DROID 2, DROID 2 GLOBAL and DROID PRO, but additional devices, including ones made by other manufacturers, are expected to follow. For more details, feel free to check out the full press release below.

I like... although currently just forwarding my office number to my Google Voice number has been doing that for me... this seems better though.
