Quick Calculator and Weather Forecast Applications for IP Phone 8900/9900 Series Now Available!





The IP Communications Business Unit (IPCBU) is pleased to make available Quick Calculator and Weather Forecast by Weatherbug applications for customer (restricted to IT Administrator) download via Cisco.com. These two fun and free "as is" applications are Cisco developed and are designed specifically for IP Phone 8900 and 9900 Series endpoints. These applications take advantage of MIDlets (java programming). MIDlets are used frequently to design applications for devices such as mobile phones today and deliver a graphically richer, more responsive user experience. With Quick Calculator and Weather Forecast, you can get a taste for the applications potential that can be delivered with these endpoint solutions.


The Quick Calculator and Weather Forecast applications require Cisco Unified Communications Manager/Business Edition System Release 8.0 along with IP Phone Firmware 9.0(2) or later. Note also that internet access must be provisioned for the Weather Forecast application as this service is provided courtesy of Weatherbug. They are not downloadable/installable by end users.


For more information about these applications and access to the zip download file which includes the two application files + their documentation, go to the following URL on Cisco.com (note - this will take you out from the collaboration community):
