The Skype phone will be available in Japan and uses either 802.11b or g to place its calls. The phone also supposedly has Bluetooth so you can hook this up as a handset for your computer, but we're not sure how useful that feature will be.

This could be good but I find more and more Wifi hotspots are becoming pay to surf and not free

I guess if there started to be lots of free Hotspots then you would eventually get mobile phone sized Skype handsets.

I bet the major phone networks will have something to say about that happening. Who knows they may even look to the future and jump onboard.

i wonder about the security of these systems, aint that difficult to pick up mid air signals with the right equipment. not sure id be happy with some tech kiddie listening in on my conversations. as per usual the security seems to lag behind the technology, although some companies seem to be working on encryption software.

Cool bit of kit, looks very SonyEricssonish.

You may want to try something like I am doing, which is having an XDA Exec with Skype installed, that way I can have both my Home line (Skype Out) + Mobile with me at all time!
