Skype gets ready to throw several brands of WiFi phones at their users (after they throw some money at Skype, of course). There are four models in the wings:

  • the F1PP000GN-SK from Belkin
  • Edge-Core's WM4201
  • SMC's WSKP100, coming in August,
  • and of course Netgear's SPH101, due this month.

Handset prices will range from about $300 down to (more acceptable) $189.

You should keep in mind that some public hotspots require a web-based login first, which quite rules out the SPH101 for travel usage.
