Skype SMC WiFi Phone

Skype today began offering a unique phone combo kit designed to get users on to its voice-over-Internet service as quickly as possible. A special bundle for the PC-independent SMC WSKP100 phone includes one of FON's La Fonera Wi-Fi Routers; the tie-in not only lets the owner get access to any FON hotspot available on Earth but even lefts them make money on the router by legally charging others to use wireless Internet access. Skype itself also chips in with 500 SkypeOut minutes to real-world numbers and a year of voice mail to get buyers started.

The bundle is currently available in the US for $160 from Skype's online shop. [via LAPTOP]
