Linksys, not Apple, introduces iPhone
Adding to the large amount of rumours on the Internet about a possible Apple product called iPhone, Linksys has announced its own series of VoIP (voice over IP) products running under this brand.

The company says they have been launching iPhone products since 2004, albeit some of the products linked from their press information are actually older devices being branded as iPhone.

The new iPhone family of Voice over IP (VoIP) solutions includes such products as the iPhone Cordless Internet Telephony Kit (CIT200), iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit (CIT300), iPhone Dual-Mode Cordless Phone for Yahoo! Messenger with Voice (CIT310), iPhone Wireless-G IP Phone (WIP300) and iPhone Wireless-G IP Phone with Web Browser (WIP330). All those products were already in the market, without the iPhone branding.

Only the new iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit for Skype (CIT400, pictured) and the also new iPhone Wireless-G Phone for Skype (WIP320) have the iPhone brand on the device itself and on their product pages on the company's website.

The iPhone product family includes products covering a range of VoIP solutions from Skype to standards-based SIP handsets, including a handset compatible with Yahoo! Messenger and a streaming video camera

The new iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit for Skype (CIT400) embeds the Skype communications client into a cordless phone base station that is attached directly to the home network via Ethernet, making it easy to place calls to other Skype users, mobile phones, or landlines without turning on a computer. The iPhone Wireless-G Phone for Skype (WIP320) makes Skype portable by integrating it into a Wireless-G handset, allowing consumers to place calls from anywhere they can connect to a wireless access point.
