Netgear Skype WiFi Phone

One of the most dominant themes in technology recently has been the centrality of the computer. Rather than just being used for word processing and browsing the internet, the computer has become the tool we use to listen to music, watch movies, play video games, and much more. Of all these, the segment where this is best demonstrated is in communications. Not only has email become most people's preferred means of communicating, but the computer, through VOIP, has started to replace the telephone. The conventional telephone line, or land line, is almost totally obsolete at this point because the task can be handled more ably by a broadband connection. Services like Vonage work well, but another option is Skype, the Ebay-owned communications service that not only offers free person-to-person internet chat, but also allows users to dial any traditional phone number (SkypeOut) and even get a phone number of their own (SkypeIn). The SPH101 Skype WiFi Phone is a basic device- it is a wireless mobile phone that allows you to connect to Skype in order to send and receive calls. In addition to being used as one would a normal phone, it can be used for free Skype communications, which is a like instant messaging though you can talk rather than type. The goal of this product is to separate Skype from the computer. After all, if you are willing to pay a few dollars a month Skype can be a full-fledged phone service but there is no reason why you should have to be stuck at your computer the whole time- a phone like this one is how you get the most out of Skype.
