Not Your Dad’s Mobile Phone

An interesting bit of news about Skype and Netgear‘s soon-to-launch WiFi phone, from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas:

“Networking products maker Netgear and wireless calling provider Skype on Wednesday unveiled the first Wi-Fi phone designed to work on the internationally popular voice over IP service.
The so-called Wi-Fi phone, which will allow Skype users to access the service and call anyone anywhere in the world, is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2006. The companies also said pricing would be announced in that time frame.”

You go, Skype!
