Available WiFi phones for Skype and SIP

The long awaited Skype handset SPH101 from Netgear is on the market for about 230. One caveat though: “The Skype WiFi phone does not contain a web browser, therefore, cannot access those hotspots that require web-based login or authentication.”

If you prefer open standards like SIP and Linux and have got some more money to spend, take a look at the Trolltech Linux Phone It’s aimed at developers who will be able to program and install their own applications on this quite stylish WiFi phone. For a starting price of $695, you get a Linux kernel 2.4.19, QVGA LCD color screen, Intel XScale 312 MHz, 64MB RAM and 128MB Flash memory, Mini-SD card slot, Bluetooth and a Mini-USB connector.
