Linksys Yahoo VoIP Phone

Network technology maker Linksys has just released the CIT310 dual-mode Yahoo! and conventional voice phone. The cordless handset is designed to integrate tightly with Yahoo! Messenger's voice services, letting users send and receive calls to both members of their Yahoo! contact list as well as real-world phone numbers. Integration with Yahoo's Internet search engine is also a key aspect of the phone, Linksys adds. By associating the CIT310 with a particular ZIP code, owners can search for and place calls to local businesses through Yahoo! Local Search. A toggle button is present to instantly switch the phone between its Yahoo! role and traditional phone line access. Linksys estimates 10 hours of talk time when the phone is away from its USB base station. The CIT310 ships from Amazon today for $100. A full-size photo is available after the jump.
