The Win 1200
digital 5.8GHz cordless phone from Uniden is the first multi-mode phone we've seen that acts as an extension to the
upcoming Windows Live Messenger service. The Win 1200 offers punters the ability to place and receive calls for free
via Windows Live Messenger (Microsoft's successor to MSN Messenger) PC-to-PC offering; "low-cost" (starting
at $0.023/min the last we heard) PC-to-phone VoiP calls via MCI's Web Calling service; and yak it up over traditional
landlines. The WIN 1200 connects to the PC via a USB cord (hopefully from the phone's cradle, right!?) and includes
a speaker-phone, the ability to download the Messenger contact list to the handset phonebook, a full color LCD
screen showing the status of your contacts, and a "user-friendly" interface with soft key menu options and
joystick navigation. Unfortunately, they couldn't be bothered to drop a few snaps of the $100 handset in action..grrr.
So enough with all the Skype handset news
wants your VoiP lovin' too.
