VoIP

Most of the VoIP vendors were over in the Innovation tent, with the usual suspects represented. Packet8 was showing its Video Phone and Pulver Innovations and Free World Dialup had pods too. I almost missed FWD's announcement that their free pulver.Communicator Skype-like application now interoperates with Skype. Wise move since if you can't beat 'em, joining is at least a survival strategy (for the application, not FWD, which is doing pretty nicely, thank you).

Speaking of Skype, while at Actiontec's demo suite (more later) I saw their newish Internet Phone Wizard with Skype. This $70 or so box lets you use any cordless or wired analog phone with Skype. I liked that it powers itself of the USB port of the computer that it's attached to, but wish it wasn't limited to Win XP and 2000.

I dropped by Vonage's booth to get an in-person peek at the wireless VoIP phone products they announced in advance of the show, but never made it over to VTech's offsite stand to see the Skype cordless phone which was also announced.

I did manage to swing by Uniden to see the UIP1868 VoIP Phone and DTA 200 Digital Telephone Adapter that they introduced.

The UIP1868 is a 5.8GHz digital expandable cordless phone with built-in VoIP adapter, expandable up to ten handsets and the DTA 200 suports VoIP calling on two telephone lines and features Caller ID, Call Waiting and 3-Way Calling. Definitely not the sexiest design around, but probably perfect for the small office market Uniden is targeting with the product.
