D-Link V-CLICK: dual cell and VoIP phone

D-Link V-CLICK Phone

T-Mobile and other companies have discussed the prospect of launching a dual-mode cellphone service that would let subscribers switch to Internet calling to save roaming costs. The phones to enable this have been slow to arrive until today's introduction of D-Link's V-CLICK handset. The new device is effectively a flexible platform: the standard model will ship unlocked, allowing users to turn on tri-band GSM access to a local phone carrier, but also has a special button that instantly switches to WiFi if the user would rather use a VoIP service or browse the Web through the included Opera Mobile browser. The V-CLICK is also built to recognize specific WiFi profiles and can automatically connect to different secure networks depending on the user's location. Talk time can vary between 5 hours for GSM mode and 2 hours for WiFi mode. Expect D-Link's new phone to ship in early 2007 for $600.
