Philips VP5500 WiFi VOIP Phone

Philips has finally released its VP5500 Wi-Fi VOIP handset. The VP-5500 is powered by Linux and lets users make live video calls using its built-in VGA camera (640×480 resolution). The 30 FPS video is displayed on a 2.2″ color LCD supporting 64k colors. Not sure of availability outside of The Netherlands or whether the phone is compatible with SIP service providers other than Dutch telecommunications operator KPN’s consumer VoIP (Voice-over-IP) service called InternetPlusBellen.

Thanks to Tom Keating’s VOIP and Gadgets Blog for the heads up.
