While not at all the first to present a Skype phone, Philips could very well claim having the best-looking autonomous handset with their VOIP841 (I disagree with the CrunchGear article that says the USRobotics USR9631 was operable without a PC, because it appears to me as using the USB port to connect to Skype.)

With Panasonic&catalogId=13251&itemId=98296&modelNo=Content08312006061130726&surfModel=Content08312006061130726, yet another manufacturer enters the ring. But it seems they haven't got very far into the market, since they don't even have a name for their Skype phone yet.
