Linksys CIT200 Skype Phone (Verdict: Loaded)

The Linksys CIT200 Skype phone for the home has been reviewed and it's looking pretty decent. The phone itself is sexy and loaded. Not too many home phones have a color screen with built-in menus and the added luxuries of a backlit keyboard, caller ID, and a DECT 1.8-1.9Ghz bandwidth (not that we have any use for DECT here in the U.S.). So how's the phone perform? You can access your Skype friends easily enough, as well as use SkypeOut for regular phone calls. Call quality is excellent and the integrity of the call stays intact. Installation seems to take awhile and the USB receiver can't charge the phone itself, but overall, it's totally rockin'—especially the price of phone calls using SkypeOut.
