Skype wi-fi phone release 'later this year'


Although competitor Vonage has already stated that it’s working on a wi-fi phone, as reported earlier, Skype CEO Niklas Zennstrom has reconfirmed that we can expect to see a wi-fi Skype mobile and see it later this year. The phone will provide Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP. Tranlsation: cheap internet calls) available without having to tether yourself to your machine. Good news for us, bad news for almost every mobile phone network.
