DECT seems to be all the rage these days whenever someone wants to make a cordless handset or headset, and Thompson isn't one to miss out on the boat. Like the other DECT Skype phones, this has a base station that links to your PC and the standard Skype software, which then communicates audio to and from the handset.
It has a 100-name address book, 120 hours of standby and 10 hours of talk time. One of the problems with a standalone WiFi Skype phone is their poor battery life. If you don't have it charging when you're not using it, the battery will die at an inopportune time. The GE 2830 is $149 and should be available sometime soon.
