Buffalo WiFi Skype Phone

Buffalo on Wednesday introduced its WSKP-G Skype phone. Unlike some VoIP handsets, Buffalo says, the new phone can operate without requiring a host computer running Skype software; it can place calls through almost any 802.11b/g wireless hotspot. Those concerned with security can also synchronize the device with Buffalo's one-button AOSS security or manually configure it for WEP, WPA, and WPA2. The company further promises an average of 2.5 hours of continuous talk time that can be recharged directly through an AC adapter or a computer's USB port. Buffalo hopes to ship its Skype phone by mid-December for $207 in Japan; the company has not yet discussed a North american release.
