Philips and Ingram Partner to Launch VOIP Handsets in New Zealand
Philips is introducing two VOIP (Voice Over IP) products into the New Zealand market. The Skype VOIP321 and Windows Live Messenger (LM) VOIP433 (pictured) are targeted to consumer markets, but can also be used by small and medium businesses.

The new cordless phones have dual functionality so consumers can make free Voice over Internet Protocal (VoIP) calls, as well as ordinary landline calls.

The Skype VOIP321 and Windows LM VOIP433 phones operate on DECT (Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telephone) technology. Users can make and receive calls on both Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and VoIP networks from a single handset. The new VOIP321 allows consumers to view who is online anywhere in the home by simply looking at the cordless phone display. The handset allows specific polyphonic ring tones to distinguish Skype and landline calls.

The VOIP321 was developed to combine the key benefits of Skype with the Philips’ home cordless technology. Skype’s features include free worldwide calls to other Skype users, conferencing, Skype Instant Messaging and file transfer, plus calls to and from landlines through SkypeOut and SkypeIn services. The phone offers up to 10 hours talk time, with 100 hours standby.

Designed for Microsoft, the VOIP433 Dual Phone enables consumers to easily call and connect to anyone listed on their Windows Live Messenger contact list with the click of a button. In select markets the phone can also be used with a MCI service that allows PC-to-phone calls. This is not available in New Zealand.

The VOIP433’s color screen allows users to see their friends’ online presence, displaying dynamic Windows Live Messenger icons, and delivering notification options on the cordless handset, even when users are away from their PC.

The Philips VOIP phones are available throughout New Zealand with suggested retail prices of NZ$189.98 (Philips VOIP321) and NZ$229.95 (Philips VOIP433).
