Skype goes WiFi

Skype gets ready to throw several brands of WiFi phones at their users (after they throw some money at Skype, of course). There are four models in the wings:

  • the F1PP000GN-SK from Belkin
  • Edge-Core’s WM4201
  • SMC’s WSKP100, coming in August,
  • and of course Netgear’s SPH101, due this month.

Handset prices will range from about $300 down to (more acceptable) $189.

You should keep in mind that some public hotspots require a web-based login first, which quite rules out the SPH101 for travel usage.
