PhoneGnome Delivers an API For Your Phone

The next part of David Beckemeyer’s vision for PhoneGnome unfolded yesterday.  David dropped me a piece of email to announce the arrival of the PhoneGnome API, and developers community.  In it he said:


Basically, plugging PhoneGnome in "opens up" your landline, giving it an API, enabling various kinds of convergence applications. Applications can control the home landline, query call records, use the on-line phonebook (enabling a shared, single phonebook, or sync the PhoneGnome phonebook with some other phonebook), all kinds of things your landline provider, and even today’s VoIP providers are not giving us.

Way cool!  More information is available at:

Phoneboy wrote a quick review, as did Chris Holland. Phoneboy is right — the challenge now will be to get developers to use these APIs.
