Netgear Skype Wi-fi VOIP Phone

I previously wrote about Netgear’s forthcoming Skype-compatible wi-fi phone. Imagine being able to use Skype without a computer.

Well, more recently I did a search for “skype” on Netgear’s site but did not get any results. However, using Google, I found some information at a subdomain. Overall, looks like it will be a hot product once it comes out. Netgear claims the phone will come with 802.11g support but will only be capable of WEP encryption. I’m not sure why anyone would make a new phone these days and leave out WPA support. Further details about a release date and pricing is expected to be available before the end of Q1 2006.
