Skype WiFi phone -- Accton WiFi SkyFone WM1185-T

Skype's been talking for months and months now about their plans to release a Skype WiFi phone, and now they've just announced that they're teaming up with a little-known Taiwanese company by the name of Accton Technology on the WiFi SkyFone WM1185-T, an 802.11b/g handset that can make Skype calls from any WiFi hotspot (just don't buy Accton's claims that this is the first phone for making VoIP calls without a computer — that just ain't true). Should start shipping early next year with a retail price of below $150. Ok, not bad, but where're those Palm and Symbian softphones we've been waiting for?
