(Las Vegas) Netgear today announced its Dual-Mode Cordless Phone with Skype.

The SPH200D is a dual-mode 1.9 GHz DECT cordless phone supporting both landline
and Skype Internet calls without the need to be connected to a computer.

The base station has an Ethernet (RJ-45) port to connect to a network router
and a PSTN (RJ11) connector to connect into a traditional telephone wall jack.

The base can support up to four cordless handsets (sold separately)
but only one Skype or PSTN call at a time. The handset has a built-in speakerphone
and color display, with an interface similar to that on Netgear’s Wi-Fi Skype
phone.

The SPH200D is available now at an MSRP of $199.99.
