Panasonic Goes Nuts, Releases $400 Wi-Fi Skype Phone

Speaking of Skype phones, the only notable feature on this Panasonic KX-WP1050 Wi-Fi Skype phone would be the price. Instead of buying one Netgear and one Belkin Skype phone for the same price, you're only getting one of Philips. What justifies the exorbitant price? The "executive" carrying case? Not exactly.

See, the phone actually comes with a Wi-Fi "travel" router that you can plug in to any ethernet port and simplifies setup with the Skype phone. Nothing about this setup says that it's worth $400, seeing as you can buy a cheaper Wi-Fi Skype phone and a separate travel router for about a hundred less.
