Skype WiFi phone

I've been waiting for two years for someone to make a Skype WiFi phone. Until now, you needed an always-on PC to make Skype a real phone replacement. Now, with Netgear's Skype WiFi phone, you can make calls anywhere you can get a WiFi signal.

No details yet on what operating system the phone is running, but so far, Netgear says it will not have a web browser. You can pre-order it on Amazon for $250, with units shipping June 30.
