Skype goes cordless with Siemens
Skype has announced its free software is now available for the Siemens Gigaset DECT cordless phones, meaning that users can now utilise a cordless phone to place calls to other telephones, over the Internet.

Originally announced to be released last September, Skype's free Internet telephony software works with Siemens phones via the Gigaset M34 USB adapter, an open interface adapter that is plugged into the USB connection point of a users' PC. It communicates with the phone's base station to either make or receive a Skype call. The handset then enables users to gain cordless access to the Skype feature set including free Skype to Skype calling, buddy lists, the Skype Global Directory and conference calling.

The adapter works with the recently launched Gigaset C340/345 and Gigaset CX340/345isdn, Gigaset S440/445 and Gigaset SX440/445isdn, Gigaset S645 and Gigaset SL440.

The Gigaset M34 USB adapter will also enable Gigaset phones to utilize the SkypeOut service. With SkypeOut, users pre-pay to make calls to any traditional phone numbers at local rates. The adapter is available at retail outlets, including an up-to 120 minutes free Skype Out telephony voucher.
