Vonage to introduce WiFi phone

Vonage will be releasing their WiFi portable phone, the F1000. It’s taken a while to get here, but the day has come. The phone, which is made by UTStarcom, will be able to access any public 802.11b network. You will be able to use all the features you can currently use with Vonage, like 3-way calling, call display and voicemail.

The phone looks to be identical to the one offered by BroadVoice. It has functionality you would expect in a regular low-end cell phone, such as ringtones and vibrate. You get five hours of talk time or 100 hours of standby from a single battery charge.

Though Vonage isn’t the first to offer this option, they are entering the market early. With the VoIP market heating up every day, it will only be a matter of time before their competitors offer other phones to access VoIP services on the go. This phone will cost $80, but better phones and competitive prices should come along soon. It will also be interesting to watch what, if any, response traditional mobile providers will have as this category develops.
