City 24×7, Cisco Turning #PhoneBooth into #Touchscreens



In a joint partnership City 24X7 and Cisco are installing touchscreen neighborhood directories in more than 250 NY phone booths. A 21st century electronic phone book, the 32-inch screens offer directory information, city news and alerts, transportation information, maps and restaurant information. The screens will also be accessible  bypeople with disabilities. Tom Touchet, City 24×7’s CEO, told BetaBeat they are already looking for other places to put touchscreens, especially in subways, bus stations and other areas impacting urban flow.
