Check out the new Netcomm WiFi phone - Windows CE based with SIP, Skype, Windows Messenger and web browser for HTTP authentication.

This product is not yet available in NZ but hopefully we'll see it here shortly.

Cool. Do you know if it comes with a charging cradle or is it just "plug in" like all the others? For me, I wouldnt buy a WiFi VoIP phone unless it came with a cradle so I could have a fully digital cordless phone to use with Asterisk.

They are available in New Zealand now. We haven't got any in and seen one in person yet so can't tell you if they come with a cradle or not.

They seem more suited to a power user or traveller rather than a standard extension - with the features comes a price tag. It will be interesting to see the build quality and battery life on them.

I tend to agree, that's what I use personally.
