Netgear SKYPE Wifi HandsetNETGEAR’s Skype WiFi Phone is the world’s first wireless Internet phone that can make free calls to other Skype users anywhere in the world, anytime you have WiFi access, without a PC. All of your contacts (up to 200) are shown right on the phone’s color display so you will know exactly who is online.

You will also be more available for your friends to call, because you no longer have to be on your PC to be connected. You can even make calls to ordinary phones using SkypeOut for just pennies a minute and NO MONTHLY FEES. With the Skype WiFi Phone, NETGEAR makes true mobile wireless Internet telephony a reality. Now for the first time, a phone that lets you use any WiFi network to which you have access, to talk with anyone else who’s also on Skype, anywhere in the world, for absolutely free*.

“I took it out of the box, turned it on, plugged in my Skype user name and password, and was calling colleagues within five minutes.” “Simple.” “Sound quality is excellent, and with my SkypeOut account it was a snap to call those not using the Skype network.”

“I would highly recommend this to anyone that uses Skype for calling, or for those who have historically shied away from using Skype as a telephone medium.” “This Netgear WiFi phone takes all the pain out of Skype calling.” “It’s super easy to use.”
