Skype Introduces Wi-Fi Phones

Skype users who want more mobility may opt for the new Wi-Fi phones that are due to hit the market in the third quarter of this year. The handsets will be pre-loaded with Skype software and will allow subscribers to use open Wi-Fi access points that do not need browser authentication to make calls. For this service, the eBay-owned telephony firm will charge fees similar to those for calls made from PCs. Belkin, Accton Technology’s Edge-Core, Netgear, and Standard Microsystems will supply the phones, which will be available for purchase at the Skype online store.
