IFA 2006: USRobotics Skype DECT Phone
Yet another company is joining the race to get every home using Skype. This is USRobotics’ Skype compatible USR9630 cordless phone. It has one obvious flaw already – other companies, such as Philips, are cutting out the middle man and making DECT Skype phones that work independent of a PC. Unfortunately the USR9630 will still need to be tethered to your home computer to work with Skype.
The system will support up to four handsets and will let you make and receive ordinary and VoIP calls from the one handset.
Launch dates and price are still a bit tentative – it looks like a September launch in the US with a price tag amounting to something around £60. Additional handsets, USR9631s, will follow a month later.

I had this phone for a week and sent it back and replaced it with in this article recommend RTX Dualphone 3088.
No need anymore to keep the computer on to talk to family and friends, as well no more missed calls. Highly Recommended.
