Calypso Wireless announces dual Wi-Fi/GSM-GPRS phone prototypes
Calypso Wireless, Inc. is making prototypes for its dual mode, Wi-Fi / GSM-GPRS handsets, the C1250i, that run on the Intel PXA chipset solution available for testing. The phone was firstly announced in 2003, but it seems that now the company is ready to work with mobile operators.

The company's ASNAP technology provides a system that enables Mobile Carriers and Internet Service Providers to identify and authenticate the mobile user. This creates a platform for revenue sharing between the companies and increased revenues for them by delivering new added services such as two-way, real-time video conferencing on Calypso's cellular phone using Calypso's ASNAP technology. It could also provide savings to Mobile Carriers in additional frequency spectrum and infrastructure equipment by offloading capacity to the Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and IP networks while providing additional sources of revenues.

Calypso promises mobile users will be able to make two-way, real-time video conferencing and VoIP calls over the WLAN or switch over to the mobile network when outside of a Wi-Fi hotspot. Since the C1250i's browser can be used both inside and outside the WLAN, users always have access to the Internet. Instant messaging between C1250i handsets on a wireless LAN is also possible.

The handset's battery lasts about 4 hours for VoIP calls. The Calypso C1250i comes with headphones, a cradle for USB synchronisation cable and AC adapter.
