Philips Handsets Made For Mainstream Internet Calls

By: Jill Carron

Most gadget launches are fairly the same. They usher you into a showing room where many writers who cover the latest blend of technology are packed and waiting. Technology reviewees they may be, they are still ordinary citizens who write for the ordinary folk. So it is very improper to also show them gadgets that are overpriced, very complicated, and simply not practical.

But Philips did make a good impression on the technology writers who attended its gadget launch. This Dutch electronics and gadgets creator showed off gadgets that were easy to use and allowed users to save on money by allowing them to do Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls for much less. And it would not be surprising if these Philips phones became a big hit in the mainstream market for many people do communicate with friends and family who are based in the various corners of the world.

There are already VoIP phones in the market. However, this Philips phone is very simple that anybody can figure out how to use it and make VoIP calls. It is a cordless handset which allows you to communicate with friends and familly in far away places without you being stuck in one part of your house with the wires that connect the phone to your PC.

One variation of this Philips VoIP phone is that it has been specially deisgned so as to be ready for use with Windows Live Messenger service. On the other hand, there is also a Philips VoIP phone made for Skype. Aside from the fact that these two phones have been designed to be ready for various VoIP services, there are also other differences between the two. The one for Windows has been made to be modern – sharp and colored black. The Skype-ready phone is plainer and looks just like any other DECT cordless phone in the market.
