New Skype phones run without PC

Posted on Monday, September 04 2006 @ 04:35:09 CEST by

ComputerWorld reports Philips has released a new phone that enables Skype users to call without having to boot up their PCs.
The voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone, the VOIP841, is the first such phone to be based on Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) technology, Rudy Provoost, CEO of the Philips Consumer Electronics division, said Thursday at a news conference at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.

On Thursday, Skype separately announced that Netgear Inc. will also deliver a Skype phone that operates without a PC.

Typically, Skype phones work through a computer or a laptop. The new Philips and Netgear phones plug into a broadband connection jack and a standard home phone jack. They can send and receive Skype calls over the Internet as well as calls from a regular home phone number.
The VOIP841 will be available in December.
