Sotec Skype Phone

Sotec has shipped a new Skype-capable phone through its partner Comfix. The SKP-001 is the company's first VoIP phone and offloads much of Skype's software functions to the handset. While ultimately dependent on a local PC and connected wirelessly through a USB dongle, Sotec's phone can access a given Skype account's address book, call history, and negotiating three-way conference calls. Battery life is a highlight of the phone's usefulness, according to Comfix. Talk time is measured at a long 15 hours; in standby mode, the SKP-001 can last for 1200 hours before a recharge. It debuts today for $100.
