VTech launches launches cordless phone compatible with Skype
Skype is a free Internet telephony software that offers a peer-to-peer network connection to make free voice calls to anyone in the world. IT also offers a prepaid service that allows users to places VoIP phone calls to standard telephone lines.

"Until now, consumers in the U.S. could only take advantage of Skype's free Internet telephony software and features when connected directly to their computer," said Donna Silbert, vice president of product management at VTech communications. "VTech is excited to partner with Skype to offer users unlimited, superior quality voice calls using their cordless VTech handset anywhere in the home.

The 2.4 GHz cordless usb7100 phone is expandable up to four handsets, providing crystal clear calling over the Internet from any room in the home without the need for extra wiring. In addition, users will enjoy all the advantages of cordless phone technology, including caller ID, call waiting, intercom and conference call features. Users can also view on the cordless handset display which contacts are online, as well as being able to set a presence status, for example, showing if users are online, away or do not want to be disturbed. Finally, with each call automatically encrypted by Skype, security is not a concern.
