Cabine multimédia
What may be replacing the increasingly hard-to-find pay phone? Multimedia booths like this experimental prototype with its large tactile screen on the esplanade of La Défense. Here you can telephone, surf the internet, read and send emails, as well as have free access to practical information such as train schedules or addresses of restaurants, museums, cinemas or pharmacies. For the moment ten minutes of internet access is free. Telephone charges remain the same as in traditional phone booths. Several of these cabines developped by Orange, a subsidiary of France Télécom, have been installed around Paris and Marseilles. Click here for a video demonstration.
