Zyxel unveils Skype smartphone

Zyxal has announced the UK launch of a new converged WiFi/GPRS/GSM quad-band V660 smartphone with built-in VPN support.

The Skype phone will enable users to make and receive calls whether via voice over wireless LAN (VoWLAN), fixed or mobile through one single device, together with access to email, web, and instant messaging services.

The V660 is powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile Edition 5.0 and combines form and function with its 1.9-inch display. The mobile phone also includes a 2.0 megapixel camera, video and MP3 player, 64mb on-board memory, a MicroSD expandable memory slot for further storage capacity and comes with Skype software pre-installed.

According to ZyXEL, the network-neutral V660 smartphone is an open platform system that can integrate freely with any IP telephony service and/or mobile provider and can be loaded with any Microsoft Mobile compatible software. Skype provides users with access to free calls to Skype accounts, whilst also offering discounted calls to landlines.
