Fujitsu VoIP/Cellular Phones

Fujitsu has announced two WiFi-enabled voice over IP phones that want to be the superbaby offspring of your friendly VoIP provider and your less friendly cellular carrier. The WiPCom 1000, which looks to run Windows CE, has a Compact Flash slot that accepts Personal Handyphone System cards, allowing it to connect to those networks, commonplace in Japan, China and other parts of Asia.

The slightly less boring but far more unwieldy looking brother, the FR-V, shown here, runs Linux and is focused on video conferencing. It's got CF and SD slots, but no word if it can accept cellular data cards, and no news of pricing or availability.
