We first saw Ipevo’s Wi-Fi phone for Skype back in October and today they’ve announced its availability. Sure, Belkin and Netgear have had their respective Wi-Fi Skype phones out for a smidge longer, but Ipevo’s is $50 cheaper with the same functionality. It has a backlit keyboard and a 1.8-inch LCD.
When you’re done Skypeing away just drop it back into the cradle to recharge. The final hardware doesn’t seem to have changed much from the prototype we saw last year and its dimensions are akin to those of the Nokia 8260.
The Wi-Fi phone for Skype is 802.11b/g compatible and supports WPA, WPA2 and WEP encryption.
