Linksys Launches WiFi Phone
How's this for a little swerve ball: Linksys – the brand you associate with your WiFi at home – have launched a mobile phone. Users can use any VoIP provider with the phone and the high end version doubles up as a web browser. Betanews says:
The entry-level WIP300 includes SIP v2 support, 802.11b/g compatibility, 1.8-inch color LCD display, backlit keypad, signal strength and battery level indication, and a USB charger interface among other features. The higher-end WIP330 offers a 2.2-inch display, and adds a web browser, Quality of Service support, and support for auto provisioning.
