From this morning's PR pile, a new handset that makes VOIP calling as easy as finding a Starbuck's:
Vonage... and UTStarcom... today launched the F1000, a portable Wi-Fi handset manufactured by UTStarcom and configured with Vonage’s Voice over IP (VOIP) phone service. This product, which will offer mobility across 802.11b networks, is now available at www.vonage.com for $129.99 with a $50 instant rebate for a total of $79.99.In some future models, the antenna will double as a muffin warmer. Actually that's just a suggestion. I'm sure the folks at Starbuck's wouldn't argue.
... Vonage is excited to offer its subscribers the UTStarcom F1000 Wi-Fi handset, which will enable them to make unlimited local and long distance calls from any open access Wi-Fi hot spot... Equally important, the F1000 supports a robust battery, with up to 5 hours of talk time, 50-100 hour standby and the ability to recharge in 2-3 hours.
