Panasonic's cordless landline with Skype

Evan Blass

Can't decide whether to use the oh-so-nineties landline or your fresh new Skype account? No worries thanks to Panasonic. Panny is tag-teaming their telephones with a new Skype partnership. If the plans work out, you'll get your choice of calling options between both services on a single phone, which sounds better than a Skype WiFi-only phone. We still think it's odd to use a wireless phone for calls over wires, but at least we can feel slightly redeemed with the addition of Skype on our home phone. Here's hoping the new model looks like the current KX-TG5456S from Panasonic pictured above; we just can't wait to see our Skype contacts on a color screen.
