The M20 connects to local networks via wired or WiFi interfaces. it supports standard SIP-based VoIP registrars, proxies, or outbound proxy servers.

For comfort work with M20 it sports 3.5-inch color LCD display, along with a telephone keypad and handset. It can be connected to the TV via analog RCA video and stereo audio ports.

The M20 is already available with a suggested retail price of $260.

The iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit

The iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit

The iPhone Dual-Mode Internet Telephony Kit for Skype is not a product of Apple as you can think. It’s a new handset for VoIP from Cisco. It can be plugged directly into the ethernet jack. Just for $180 you may own a stylish phone which makes calls via Skype and traditional landline without PC.

Philips already announced its version Skype-phone which doesn’t need PC. I cannot compare functionality of iPhone and VoIP841 but Cisco phone definitely looks more attractive.
