Sotec's SKP-001 cordless Skype phone: Japan can have it


Sotec is offering-up the latest in wireless Skype handsets with this, their SKP-001 sold by Comfix. Skype's where the money is for vendors, but rest assured, it's SIP compatible too. That's a good start, and it even operates in the 2.4GHz range like our old friends 802.11b/g. However, WiFi this Skype phone ain't, so you have to use the supplied USB dongle to connect. Oh, and you'll get a self-discharging, NiMH battery capable of up to 15 hours talk / 1200 hours standy, you know, until the memory effect hits. Hey, at least it's not NiCd, right? All this annoyance can be yours (in Japan) for ¥11,800 or about $100. Next.
