This image was lost some time after publication.

Dutch powerhouse Philips is poised to introduce (though only in its home base in the Netherlands for now) the VP-5500, a Wi-Fi-enabled VoIP telephone. What makes it so special? Well, it s powered by Linux, so it s automatically awesome. As far as features go, the VP-5500 comes with a built-in VGA camera that rotates up to 240 degrees, letting you check yourself out as you chat with a friend. Not only that, but you can hook it up to a TV and have it output a slideshow of all the photos you ve taken. To make it future-proof, Philips designed the phone to be updatable via Wi-Fi, opening up all sorts of neat, Linux-powered possibilities.
