NETGEAR’s Skype WiFi Phone

At CES 2006, one new gadget that caugth attention from a lot people is NETGEAR’s Skype WiFi Phone. This is only the prototype and plan to release in Q1 of 2006. Most of you knows about Skype already. I will do a short briefly about here. Skype is a software and services to enable to talk with anyone over internet (aka VoIP, Voice over IP) for free, given the other side also has Skype installed. Also the premium service will let you call anyone in this world regardless she/he has Skype or internet or not. They just call to the real telephone line.

This NETGEAR’s Skype WiFi Phone changes that, freeing you to walk around untetheered anywhere withing a WiFi network to which to have access, while you talk to other Skype users worldwide. It is pre-loaded with Skype and ready to use with a wireless network out of the box. Anyone can use an intuitive on-screen menu that lets you see who is online and available to talk. Same great interface Skype users are used to manage their Skype contacts.

No price available yet.
