According to information posted on the FCC ID registration website on Thursday, it looks like Linksys could be jumping into the Wi-Fi Skype phone fray. The registration documents for the WIP310 at first appear to be for a phone similar to the SIP-based WIP300 that is already available.

But a more careful look at the documents reveals a "Skype-certified" WIP320 model (Figures 1 and 2).

Construction photos reveal a Broadcom-based design with BCM4318 single-chip 802.11b/g radio (Figure 3) and BCM1161 Mobile VoIP processor.

Unlike Accton's design, which is marketed under the SMC [reviewed here], Belkin and EdgeCore brands, the WIP320 appears to support a hands-free speaker phone feature.

We did not attempt to reach Linksys for comment, since it has been the company's policy to not comment on unannounced products.
