UTStarcom has launched the F3000 – a Wi-Fi handset that gives you the benefits of VoIP without having to hang around your PC.
The clamshell handset, which is available in both black and gold, looks quite stylish and features a 1.8-inch screen, polyphonic ringtones, text messaging capability, call waiting, three-way calling and a talk time of up to three hours (with standby of 75 hours). It supports a range of voice protocols, including SIP, SDP, RTP/RTCP and RFC 2833/inband DTMF and operates at Wi-Fi 802.11b/g 2.4GHz, supporting Wi-Fi security WEP64/128 and WPA. There’s also a selection of languages, including English, French, Spanish and Chinese.
The phone also features an Auto-Search capability, allowing you to locate Wi-Fi networks within range and store these profiles for later use.
As yet, there’s no price or availability details – we’ll keep you posted.
