Wi-Fi Phone for Skype

Belkin today unveiled its Wi-Fi Phone for Skype that lets users make free Skype calls without the need for a computer. The device offers free, unlimited domestic and international calls over the internet to other Skype users, as well as low-cost calls to "ordinary" areas worldwide, according to Belkin. "With over 100 million registered users all over the world, Skype is enabling the world's conversations," said Mike Chen, director of product management for Belkin. "The Belkin Wi-Fi Phone combines the cost savings and enjoyment of using Skype with the convenience of Wi-Fi, making it even easier for people to stay in touch." The Wi-Fi phone is slated for shipment in North America in August for $150, with launches planned in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow thereafter.
