As far as I can remember, Cisco EoL / EoS Batch #51 is the first batch to include a Cisco VoIP product. Personally I prefer the Linksys (a division of Cisco) phones because of their XML configuration files.

Don't forget, most EoL / EoS announcements include a list of product migration options. If you need help deciding which product is best for you, send me a message.
