Siemens and Yahoo! In VoIP Partnership
Siemens Communications, Inc. has announced an agreement with Yahoo! to extend VoIP calling capabilities to Siemens' Gigaset Cordless Telephones.

The relationship between Siemens and Yahoo! Messenger with Voice will enable consumers to utilise voice-enhanced services not only at a PC, but from anywhere within the home.

Siemens and Yahoo! will offer the Siemens Gigaset M34 USB adapter, which IP-enables Gigaset telephones with the VoIP calling capabilities of Yahoo! Messenger with Voice. The adapter will allow users to make and receive calls through the free PC-to-PC calling feature of Yahoo! Messenger with Voice, and make cost-effective calls to fixed line phones through the Phone In and Phone Out features.

Using their Gigaset handsets, customers will be able to easily access their Yahoo! Messenger friends' lists, view contacts and their presence status and change their personal presence status. The adapter is compatible with Gigaset cordless phones introduced after the fall of 2004 and that belong to the C-Class and above. The adapter will be available by the third quarter of 2006.

The global agreement gives users of Yahoo! Messenger with Voice the opportunity to order the Siemens Gigaset M34 USB adapter from a variety of retailers that can be found through the Yahoo! Web site.
