VTech Communications today introduced the usb7100 VTech Skype cordless phone, allowing users to use all the features of Skype’s Internet telephony software without being in front of their computer. Skype is a free Internet telephony application that offers a peer-to-peer network connection to make free voice calls to anyone in the world. Users connect to both their existing telephone line and Skype’s free Internet telephony service from VTech’s “all in one” handset, which enables them to place and receive free, unlimited global voice calls. The new phone is expected in the Spring of this year. Pricing was not announced.
