Firebox VoIP Cyberphone

Firebox on Wednesday started sales of a new version of the VoIP Cyberphone. The handset replicates a conventional corded phone, including the cradle rarely included with most VoIP handsets, but is meant solely for Skype and other Internet-based telephone programs. It reduces cost by eliminating the LCD screen sometimes used by rivals but simultaneously uses its digital nature to its advantage by using voice prompts. Unlike with the first edition, inbound calls can be screened using customized WAV ringtones or voice notifications of caller ID; outbound calls can also be dialed by using the numeric equvialent to a recipient's name or by voice recognition. The third version of the Cyberphone further builds in a speakerphone for hands-free sessions. Firebox expects new stock of the phone early next year, when it will ship for $59. [Via CrunchGear]
