Linksys Releases Skype Cordless Phone
Linksys and Skype are announcing a global relationship that will include marketing a new cordless phone that takes free Skype Internet phone calling off the computer.

The new Internet Telephony Kit (CIT200) provides callers with a convenient alternative to making free Skype calls while sat at their computer, giving them the freedom to make free Skype calls wherever they are in the home or office.

The CIT200 is the first Skype-enabled product bundled with a Skype starter pack. The handset also supports SkypeOut, SkypeIn and Skype Voicemail, premium services that lets callers make and receive calls using traditional landlines or mobile phones, and send and receive messages up to 10 minutes long.

The handset also includes a number of convenient features for Skype users, including supports for call waiting, mute button, multiple ring tones, intercom support between multiple handsets, built-in speakerphone, caller id and a color LCD panel.

The phone can have up to 120 hour standby and 10 hour talk time. The cordless handset uses the DECT wireless technology so won't interfere with 2.4GHz phones or devices.

The CIT200 will be available worldwide for an estimated price of US$129.99.
