Philips WiFi VoIP phones

Philips is developing new VoIP phones with WiFi access, according to a filing prepared by the FCC. The VP 6000 and 6500 will presumably allow VoIP calls from any wireless hotspot, though Philips has not indicated what software it will support, whether it be AIM, Skype, MSN, or some custom application. The cellphone-like design incorporates a number pad and a direction pad, along with a 2.2-inch screen that supports resolutions up to 176x220. Notable for any phone is the camera, which pivots 240 degrees vertically to be used for video calls or to record others. It's unclear when the 6000 and 6500 might ship.
