UTStarcom F3000 WiFi VoIP Phone Works With SIP, Not Skype

The UTStarcom F3000 WiFi Phone doesn't work on Skype, but it does the next best thing, SIP. It supports SDP, RTP/RTCP, RFC2833/inband DTMF, and supports the G.711 and G.729 codecs. Both these codecs are higher quality codecs than standard landline phones, which means there's actually a benefit in using VoIP other than for the cost.

The phone itself has 802.11b/g, supports WEP and WPA, and comes in black and gold. It has a 1.8-inch LCD screen, polyphonic ringtones, text messaging, and a talk time of three hours. Kind of skimpy, but alright if you're just using it around the house or the office. Not a bad phone for Asterisk users.
