What is touted to be the ‘World’s First Wireless Music Skype Phone’ is
actually quite ‘handy’. With a connectivity of 802.11 b+g at 11/ 54Mbps, you can
coolly use it at around 30 mtrs. It can be used for Skype-to-Skype calls,
SkypeIn, SkypeOut, Conference calls, and Voicemail. All of which worked
beautifully with great sound clarity and minimal breakage. Even the music
capability is impressive. The Wi-Fi music bit works seamlessly with Windows
Media Player, without interfering with other audio functions on the
computer-thanks to the dual audio channel offering.

The 128×64 pixels LCD displays a very intuitive interface, which is schemed
much like a regular albeit outdated mobile phone. The claimed battery life is
that of 2.5 hours talk time, which more or less scores up to the mark, without
playing music. However, it requires the bundled USB wireless adapter plugged
into the computer, for it to work. Coming to the connectivity, too many physical
obstacles like doors, windows, etc do bring in some disturbance -but this is
only at the extreme distances of its range. The other issue is that the
impressive LOUD loudspeaker (for its music capability) is low-toned for VoIP
calls, which is weird as you’d expect better loudness for VoIP calls than for
music.

Bottom Line: Skype-ing wirelessly with supplemented Wi-Fi music
playback capability make it a good buy.
